Their auditorium? A custom-made double-decker bus which escorts them from location to location on a unique journey.

Rear View, a location-specific performance from IOU carries its audience around the town wearing headphones, with various aspects of performance spread across its route.

The show involves performance, poetry and audio soundtrack, including various landmarks around the town.

It had its maiden voyage on Thursday evening, with a select few given the chance to see the spectacle before it fully launches at the festival.

Darren Cross, SeaChange Arts communications director said: “Out There is very much about taking a sideways look at Great Yarmouth and seeing it differently.

“As you journey around the streets, it provides a fascinating perspective into parts of the town you often take for granted.”

David Wheeler, artistic director at IOU says “This project has taken many years to develop and I’m really excited about seeing the different interpretations the piece brings to Great Yarmouth, and most importantly how audiences will engage with the work and how they respond to the unexpected and unpredictable nature of Rear View.”

Rear View will be performed at various times across the weekend. For full information visit the Out There Festival website.
