A hyperreal exploration of the way we consume information, and the way information consumes us.

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. 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.

‘Playful and exploratory… with shades of Forced Entertainment.’ - The Guardian

‘Every moment is mesmerising… a super-clever questioning of truth onstage.’ - The Stage ★★★★

Ages 12+

(Show includes descriptions of a plane disaster.)

About the Company: YESYESNONO

We make work that explores what connection might look like in a digital world. Some people call our work theatre. Some people don't.

We make work that invites the audience to consider their own situation as spectator. We make work that invites performers to use their own identities as artistic material. We've shown work across the country.

In 2017 we won the Total Theatre Award for Best Emerging Company for our debut show Five Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist.
