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

Led by Cecilia Knapp or Jemima Foxtrot, IOU take you on an unforgettable journey on the 'one-of-a-kind' Rear View bus. The intersection between real life and fiction merge as we follow the life of a woman through the streets of Halifax.

Rear View is a unique experience where the town becomes the stage for a mesmerising moving show. The audience sit on a custom-made double decker bus, while listening through headsets and watching as the story plays out. See Halifax as you’ve never seen it before, as familiar and unusual locations become part of the performance.

Halifax based company 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. Following Rear View’s maiden tour across the UK the bus now returns to its home in Halifax; to the place it was originally created.

Book your tickets for the performance now before it hits the road again!

“A little bit special, wonderfully poignant” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
