The Accidental Mechanics Group was formed in order to facilitate the production and touring of original collaborations between Stewart Legere and Christian Barry – new works that explore and celebrate the nature of performance, persona and queer identity, employing whatever means necessary: storytelling, music, dance, media.
At the centre of any Accidental Mechanics Group event is an intimate act of direct contact between the performer and the audience. A chance to say what we really think and feel. Right now. Today.
Creator/ Performer – Stewart Legere
