Somewhere on the other side of the world. A plane is falling from the sky. You can see it on your laptop screen. You can watch it happening on Youtube. You can hit refresh 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 dance-filled deconstruction of digital information. A hyperreal summoning for a post-truth age. A yearning for empathy in mediated world.
The development of the accident did not take place is supported by HOME, ARC Stockton and Camden People’s Theatre.
“I knew I wasn’t in for an evening of passive theatre watching; this production was going to make me think… I’m not sure what to make of the accident did not take place. The rest of the audience, who I suspect were cleverly scratching their chins, seemed to enjoy it. But did I like it? Strangely, yes. – Reviewer Number 9
