Leeds based dance theatre duo ACCA present their much anticipated first full length show: Occupational Hazard.
Meet Becky and Linda, ACCAirways’ creme de la creme. Fusing comedy, clowning and cabaret, Occupational Hazard is an easy takeoff and a bumpy landing into the world of navigating consent as a female in the service industry. Expect high energy dancing to questionable robot impressions with ACCA’s iconic flair for playfulness. You’re in safe hands when you fly with Becky and Linda, so sit back, relax, and let them lull you into a false sense of security. Boarding passes at the ready, this flight is about to take off.
“Absolutely loved the pace, change of dynamics and characterisation. Very entertaining, I would love to see more of this piece”

Audience participation is encouraged, but not mandatory. The show will start with a curtain raiser by community participants.

The show deals with the themes of sexual consent and navigating sexism including the representation of sexual assault which individuals may find triggering. It is okay to step out and come back when you're ready. Venue staff are on hand to provide assistance if you need it. Where to find further support after the show can be found at the end of our programme.
