'A profound, perception-altering, poetic experience' The Stage

‘If at 65 you could say something to yourself at 23, what would it be?’

The streets of London become the stage as you take a tour aboard IOU’s custom-made open top bus for an unforgettable journey in Eltham.

Beginning in a life-drawing class, Rear View quickly becomes a moving adventure about a woman’s life led by performance poets Cecilia Knapp and Jemima Foxtrot. Reflections, predictions and observations blur the line between reality and fiction.

IOU has a 40-year tradition of creating work that combines many art forms presented in unusual indoor and outdoor spaces, festivals, venues, galleries and digital worlds.

Cecilia Knapp and Jemima Foxtrot will perform alternate shows. Recommended for ages 11+, duration approx 70mins. Dress appropriately as the bus is open to the elements.

Thursday 29 & Friday 30 June - 5pm, 6.30pm & 8pm

Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 July - 12noon, 1.30pm, 3pm & 4.30pm

Book now.

Next stop: LeftCoast SpareParts Festival, Blackpool in July.

Co-commissioned and presented by Batley Festival, Festival of Thrift, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Leftcoast, Blackpool, Fleetwood Festival of Transport featuring SpareParts, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Out There Festival, The Piece Hall, SO Festival and Stockton International Riverside Festival.
