You Me Bum Bum Train is created by Kate Bond and Morgan Lloyd. This exhilarating, participatory adventure ensures each participant is the sole audience member - a passenger who journeys through a maze of live scenes featuring over 200 performers.
Artists Kate Bond and Morgan Lloyd originally created You Me Bum Bum Train in 2004 and the piece has been evolving ever since. Last year, they won the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, an annual prize that aims to encourage a new generation of creative artists working on bold, innovative and challenging projects.
