How to prepare a porno with your partner

A story of passion and partnership within Vancouver's arts community.

  1. It's true. Last month the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival and Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre partnered together to present a porno – specifically, Isabella Rossellini's Green Porno: Live on Stage. A full house of 660 curious and eager individuals watched us do it at the Vancouver Playhouse.
  2. Green Porno: Live on Stage is the stage presentation of the iconic Isabella Rossellini‘s popular web series, Green Porno. The evening featured Rossellini live on stage at the Vancouver Playhouse discussing and acting out the fascinating sex lives of land and sea creatures. As Rossellini herself described it, Green Porno is not pornographic, but it is obscene!
  3. Successfully pulling off this provocative event was no small feat; a new partnership between two organizations had to be built on mutual respect, trust and experience. Mauro Vescera, executive director of Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre, approached the PuSh Festival in 2014 with the remarkable opportunity to work with the Italian superstar Isabella Rossellini after he saw the work at Toronto's Luminato Festival. With this vision and the support of Vancouver's Italian community, the PuSh Festival provided event production and management expertise.
  4. It takes a lot a work and a bit of good fortune to bring these productions to life. Consider, for example, that to present Green Porno: Live on Stage to Vancouver, we had to coordinate the schedules of an international superstar, her crew of five, and the theatre's availability. That's months of negotiations that start over a year before the curtains rise. Il Centro and the PuSh Festival each bring something to the table: Il Centro made the initial connection to Rossellini's agents and managers in France and California, and the PuSh Festival brought its experience around technical production, marketing and logistics. Alone, neither organization would have had the right pieces of the puzzle.
  5. But together, Il Centro and the PuSh Festival delivered one of the most titillating events of the year. We know this because these were some of the reactions from audience members:

  11. THIS is what a partnership looks like and helps to create. Two seemingly unlikely organizations coming together to celebrate the arts, biodiversity, and hamsters.
