 Announcing the Kick & Push Theatre Festival Lineup 2019!

We are thrilled to announce this year's lineup of performances.

The Kick & Push Festival will return to Kingston this July in its fifth year of operation with a lineup showcasing innovative and boundary-breaking experiential theatre. The festival will take place throughout Kingston at various venues from July 18th to August 11th.

Artistic Producer Liam Karry says, “At the heart of this festival is the belief that theatre should bring people together, offer surprising new experiences and, above all, be fun.   

Our 2019 season will bring music, magic, and puppetry to Kingston's downtown, including two compelling indigenous narratives, curated for us by Anishinaabe artist, Waawaate Fobister. A Kick & Push ticket is a passport into the imagination of Canada's most acclaimed cultural innovators. I promise you will never forget what you discover there.”

The Kick & Push Festival runs alongside Theatre Kingston’s Storefront Fringe Festival, which features 18 production companies performing in three empty downtown storefronts. Six of the 2019 productions are coming to Kingston after sold out runs across North America, with the other two being entirely new.
