About This Project

The Accidental Mechanics Group produces and tours new works exploring and celebrating the nature of queer identity, performance and persona, employing whatever means necessary: storytelling, conversation, music, dance, media. At the centre of any Accidental Mechanics Group event is an intimate act of direct contact between the performer(s) and the audience.
