Back of the Bus

2 Oct

Adult: $20.00; Child U13: $10.00 (+ service fees) / 6pm

Part of the inaugural Waitaki Arts Festival. A Java Dance Theatre production.

Back of the Bus is a magical mystery tour that combines physical comedy, kinetic energy and captivating scenarios to engage audiences in a character-based dance tour of Oamaru.

Praised by critics for its site-specific choreography, Back of the Bus gives its audience a close-up look at the characters, both on and off the bus, as their stories unfold in several locations around Oamaru.

The audience sees the public and private side of each character as the show progresses. The personality everyone shows in public only hints at the hidden depths which emerge in private. In this show, we get to see both. The result is a show that has enjoyed successful seasons internationally and in New Zealand.

The Bus will be leaving from the front entrance of the Oamaru Opera House.
