This exciting new collaboration between Marc Brew and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui unravels life-changing moments in their lives. Sometimes difficult, those moments are explored with and without words, using storytelling, film, music, dance - and a car. 

The collaboration's 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.
