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 hyper-real exploration of the way we consume information, and the way information consumes us.

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.
