the accident did not take place
Somewhere on the other side of the world a plane is falling from the sky.
You can see it on your laptop. You can watch it happening on Youtube.
You can hit rewind and watch it burning on repeat.
With a new guest performer taking to the stage each night, the accident did not take place is a hyperreal exploration of the way we consume information, and the way information consumes us.
Join YESYESNONO for a frenetic, head-on collision with a world thoroughly mediated by screens, a world possessed with post-truth hysteria, a world yearning for contact with those who seem so far away.
YESYESNONO are an award-winning young company based in Manchester. We make fiercely innovative work that wrestles with how connections are made in the 21st century.
The development of the accident did not take place is supported by HOME, ARC Stockton, Camden People’s Theatre, Pleasance and Arts Council England. The show opened at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 at Pleasance.
