We’re constantly threatened by outbreaks of new viral diseases, such as SARS and Ebola. This show, first performed at the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, is an interactive pandemic scenario that explores whether humanity is really at risk of extinction from the next viral outbreak. The room is quarantined because of the discovery of a new virus and we'll need the audience's help as we race to understand where this virus might have come from, whether it could go global, and how we could fight to stay one step ahead.
Liam Brierley is a statistician and epidemiologist with specialised interests in emerging infectious diseases and teaching methodologies in statistics. He is currently a lecturer with sigma, the Mathematics and Statistics Support Centre at Coventry University.
