Blurring reality and fiction Rear View will take you on a moving adventure of a woman’s life told by poets Cecilia Knapp and Jemima Foxtrot.
‘If at 65 you could say something to yourself at 23, what would it be?’
The bus is a 1989 Volvo B10M mid-engined city bus and now has a grandstand-like seating arrangement with seats facing the back of the bus, giving passengers a clear view. The bus is fully accessible and has been constructed by Calderdale Engineering and Martin Pickwell and Peter Arnold at IOU’s creation space in Halifax.
The trips take place over the weekend of the Batley Festival on Friday, Saturday (festival day) and Sunday.
Accessibility: There is a platform lift for wheelchair use, or for those unable to use steps. There will also be provision for people with sight or hearing impairment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of booking if you have access requirements.
