Did you miss the chance to see PUSH Physical Theatre this fall at Rochester's premiere First Niagara Fringe Festival? This week provides another opportunity to see the buzzed-about local group. On Friday, December 14, at 7:30 p.m. PUSH and the National Institute for the Deaf will debut two new works in progress, "Red Ball" and "Giovanni." The two pieces are part of a new collaborative project, entitled "PUSHinterPLAY of Art, Culture and Technology," that will be performed at RIT's Robert F. Panara Theatre (1 Lomb Memorial Drive).

The new show will incorporate technology like iPads and 3D projection, expanding PUSH's hybrid art form even further. In fact, "Red Ball" was inspired by the use of iPads and other digital technology. "Giovanni," based on Tomie dePaola's book, "The Clown of God," relates the French legend of an orphan, and formerly famous juggler, who sacrifices himself to bring smiles to a statue of Mary and baby Jesus during Christmas. This particular performance will utilize 3D projections onto scrims and innovative slow-motion juggling through PUSH's own bit of magic.

In addition to these new works, PUSH will bring back some Fringe performances, like "Natural World," "Aviation," and "Web." Admission is free, and no tickets are necessary. For more information, visit
