PuSh Festival continues into its last week (it ends this Sunday) so you only have a few days left to check out all the experimental and mind-bending performances taking place all over the city. One such performance is THIS & The Last Caribou: a series of three works that each explores our place in relation to history and nature. As a meditation on loss and recovery, the acclaimed Regina-based company, New Dance Horizons, brings a dance performance that pairs a caribou dancer and their shadow in an ode to love and loss in our tragic times. Not sure what to expect? Neither do we—but that’s what we love about PuSh.
When: February 2-4
Cost: From $34
