PuSh Festival Presents Char Bagh
Enter Digital Handloom’s curated modern bagh, and experience four methods of storytelling.
Enter Digital Handloom’s curated modern bagh, and experience four methods of storytelling: Mandeep Sethi spits hip hop with a social conscience; graffiti artist Nisha K. Sembi responds with painting; Rupi Kaur's sensitive eye captures and celebrates graveyard shift labour and the beauty of broken English; followed by a dance party DJed by Sethi.
By Digital Handloom (Canada) and presented by PuSh Festival at Club PuSh (Performance Works), Char Bagh is the Persian term for a quadrilateral garden divided by water and pathways; a space where communities gather for exchange and contemplation.
Bending the rules of music, visual art and storytelling, these artists manipulate and reconstruct old forms to speak new tongues through digital media, graffiti, hip-hop, and spoken word. The tales that emerge speak about immigrant experience, identity, love, and class.
On Jan. 31 at 8pm at Performance Works; Tickets are $27 on the Push Festival’s website.
