Push Festival 2021

This year’s Push Festival will feature six brand-new commissions and – for the first time – an experimental video game, exploring extremism via digital narratives.

Push is HOME’s annual celebration of the North West’s creative talents, and this year has been reimagined to become a strand across the whole year, allowing work to be seen both live and digitally, despite the coronavirus pandemic which is currently keeping theatres and arts venues closed.

Our first event, Closed Hands, will be available online from March 5. There are still more events to be announced, and dates for many events are still to be finalised while we await information about when we may be able to reopen, so make sure you sign up to the HOME newsletter to be the first to hear about what’s coming up at HOME.

“Thrilling and challenging, HOME’s annual festival is a glimmering reminder that new performance continues to be developed, despite ‘you-know-what’.” – Creative Tourist
