The Bus is a performance of dance, music, puppeteering and stories in which children, adults and the actors are invited to share a common experience through a journey. The performance is about a small, red bus with four wheels. The bus is both a vehicle and a puppeteering stage. Two characters, a musician and a dancer explore their meeting and the possibilities found in the bus. The bus is a place to hide, a place to crawl and explore or a place to sit and wonder. Some times the trip is the story. Other times the trip is just a way to get around. Short stories and happenings are told with a magic light.
