PUSH and the company For Want of a Better, are supported by the Théâtre du Champ Exquis, Nationally Conventioned Dramatic Centre for the Arts, Culture and Youth.

PUSH is a tri-lingual largely improvised performance based on extracts from Gertrude Stein's revolutionary text Tender Buttons.

Two dancers, two musicians and a film-maker search through this enigmatic text how our lives, our surroundings, our histories ... our realities, are articulated. Or not.

PUSH IN-SITU

PUSH also exists as an in-situ performance, totally tuned in with the surroundings.  Interior or exterior, in varying formats

A LONG DRESS.

What is the current that makes machinery, that makes it crackle, what is the current that presents a long line and a necessary waist. What is this current.

What is the wind, what is it.

Where is the serene length, it is there and a dark place is not a dark place, only a white and red are black, only a yellow and green are blue, a pink is scarlet, a bow is every color. A line distinguishes it. A line just distinguishes it.

Au milieu d'un petit lieu quasi nu

il y a une jolie chose à dire que

le poignet mène. Le poignet mène.
