The Storytelling Bus first toured in IOU's home town of Halifax from May to July 2019. The bus ride used the backdrop of the streets of the town as its theatre, while audiences listened on headphones to one of four compositions. These soundscapes created by composer Katie English featured people describing their stories, memories and reflections inspired by Halifax.
You can hear each of the musical story compositions on the links below.
