CREATED BY KATE BOND AND MORGAN LLOYD
Thurs 19 Jul - Weds 19 Sept
You Me Bum Bum Train
In an exhilarating participatory adventure, you are the sole audience member - a passenger who journeys through a maze of live scenes featuring over 200 performers.
You will be catapulted into unimaginable situations before being returned to the outside world, breathless, invigorated and left wanting more.
The intensity of the journey is heightened by the fact that you are riding solo throughout the whole performance, making for an unforgettable experience.
A part of the London 2012 Festival
A part of CREATE 12
Co-commissioned by the Barbican, London with CREATE and Theatre Royal Stratford East
Supported by Arts Council England and Canary Wharf Group
