Norwich Theatre Present: Marc Brew and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

an Accident / a Life

This is a past event which has now ended.

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.

‘This is a startling, unique, powerfully honest work which will, one suspects, be the toast of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival when it plays there in May.’The Telegraph

‘Harrowing beauty and luminous, life-affirming spirit’ – The Herald (For Now I am…)

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
