About the Show
Diseases like HIV, H1N1, influenza, Ebola, SARS, cholera and Zika virus are affecting people globally and change the way we live. Climate change, global connectedness, population density and rapid virus mutation exacerbate the threat of pandemics and our capacity to respond.
What happens in a pandemic? How do we survive and support each other when we can’t come together and contact is forbidden? How can we learn from past pandemics and strategise for the future? Step into the control room with artists, experts and emergency services to help us build an imaginary scenario as we map out how a rapidly spreading infectious disease might affect Melbourne.
