PUSH has created its first masterwork since 2009's Geva premiere of Dracula, using its signature innovative choreography and breathtaking athleticism to once again draw viewers into classic literature and larger-than-life characters in a groundbreaking way.

Arc of Ages is a collection of epic tales from the cradle of western civilization. Kings and Slaves...Lovers and Liars...Epic Tales of Life and Death.
Jewish Community Center's Artistic Director Ralph Meranto has invited PUSH back to CenterStage to present a new, full-length piece especially for his theatre's 2012-2013 season.
"PUSH's provocative physical storytelling reinterprets and beautifully transcends its source material," says Meranto. "Darren, Heather and I have been working towards this collaboration for several years, and I couldn't be more thrilled to present the world premiere of Arc of Ages at JCC CenterStage."
Despite its years in the making, Arc of Ages includes a majority of brand new work – and a cast that's almost five times the size of PUSH's current company of five. "Arc of Ages is PUSH's most ambitious project so far, and we are excited to share it with Rochester first," says Artistic Director, Darren Stevenson.
