About the Show
Hypothetical: What If? – Michele Lee
A discussion-cum-performance, What If? explores the format of hypothetical disaster drills and asks: What if a rapidly spreading contagion threatened Melbourne? Emergency services and other organisations frequently use hypothetical disaster drills to plan and perfect responses to particular emergency situations – such as extreme weather, bomb threat or lock-down. In real life, these drills are commonly realistic, interactive and moderately stressful for participants.
In this event inspired by real disaster preparation procedures, join us to discover how those who take control in a crisis might grapple with the local spread of a dangerous infectious disease.
