Description

Accidental Theatre is a collision of perspectives, art forms and unusual collaborations – curious stories told through vibrant, ambitious performances.

Accidental is much more than a theatre, they’re a hub for all things wonderful, fun and special about the arts in Belfast. They may be strange and their building might be in need of some TLC; but Accidental is home to an exciting mix of talents that blend together just right to cook up a place that is simply marvellous.

There’s always something different going on and it’s often an adventure.

This little theatre is a temporary refuge for collaborative arts in the heart of Belfast. They plan for this building to represent what we love in arts & culture, inside & beyond, this city of ours. As Accidental focus on expanding audiences appetites for: theatre, music, art, dance and unclassifiable live performance.

Accidental Theatre want the building to be a place for cultural & community creative collisions. As they help support & amplify the vibrancy of Belfast's independent arts sector. Bringing together audiences & artists to support one another and build a more enriched community for us all.

Accidental is much more than a theatre, as they house offices, rehearsal space, recording space, and a lot more. It is a hub for the whole of Belfast to come to and create something new within their doors.

They host playwrights, actors, filmmakers, DJs, choreographers, musicians, poets, painters, technicians and curators who craft performances for Ireland and the world stage. Every production is a fresh invention, each one defined by the artists with whom has build it. Collective risk-taking is the inspiration that jolts their work into new theatrical territories and opens it up to new audiences.
