an Accident / a Life

Touring to The Hague, Glasgow, Sierre, Bulle and Basel

2 Feb - 17 May | UK & Europe


This exciting new collaboration between Marc Brew and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui unravels moments in our lives, exploring difficult things with and without words using storytelling, film, music, dance and a car.

The starting point was sharing life stories and key moments of change. For Marc, this was his car accident, where he went from ballet dancer to paraplegic in a split second.

an Accident / a Life follows on from Brew’s notable solos, For Now I am… and Remember When, both critically and publicly celebrated.
