“Back of the Bus is sure to delight and astound you. From its hugely funny opening sequence to its toe tapping finale it had me hooked” -Buzzcuts, Adelaide
“This dynamic dance experience will take you on a journey that can never be imagined” -Review from season at Southland Festival of the Arts, New Zealand
Ride on a bus through the streets and sights of Bukit Panjang! Dancers propel themselves along the aisles and hang from the ceiling. Physical comedy, pure kinetic energy and outrageous scenarios combine to create a magical mystery tour of the unexpected. First performed in 2008, this unique dance theatre show now premieres in Singapore following sell-out seasons at over 21 arts festivals including the renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, 2016 and 2019.
Created by Java Dance Theatre (New Zealand) and performed with Singapore artists Adele Goh, Sabrina Sng and Syafiqah 'Adha, Back of the Bus takes you on a journey around Bukit Panjang and you may never look at a bus ride the same way again.
