Create have collaborated with You Me Bum Bum Train as Associate Partners since we commissioned their Evening Standard Theatre Award-winning production in Bethnal Green in 2010 and again in Stratford in 2012.
You Me Bum Bum Train creates a series of alternate realities for individuals to gain a range of experiences that would not normally be possible in one lifetime. The immersive theatre production will return in Autumn 2015 / Spring 2016 with a new show in Central London.
Created by Morgan Lloyd and Kate Bond the production allows individual audience members or ‘passengers’ the chance to see what realities they may have faced had they been born under different circumstances. Often described as more like therapy or live art than theatre, the upcoming production will allow audience members to discover new sides to their personalities through spontaneous and memorable encounters.
Tickets are notoriously difficult to get hold of with 80,000 people attempting to buy tickets in less then a minute for the 2012 production. The ballot for this year’s tickets is now closed. If you have entered you will be notified if you were successful shortly. If you would like to get involved as a volunteer visit the You Me Bum Bum Train website here.
A group of young east Londoners from our Create Jobs programme will work on the new production. The group will gain invaluable experience in set design, production as well as an all-round experience at working in the creative industries at its most imaginative and genre-busting.
