«It’s a dress rehearsal for the real thing.
And you have a duty to make it real.»
Award-winning multimedia theatre-makers Breach Theatre's ambitious new show investigates rehearsing for the future – through safety drills and emergency response training.
From workshops in our workplaces to the large-scale scenarios using actors, fake wounds and explosives we see on the news, what kinds of futures are we being encouraged to picture and prepare for – and how might these “rehearsals” bleed into our off-stage lives?
Mashing up documentary film and devised theatre in the company’s signature deconstructed style, The Drill examines how anxieties around security and terrorism have become ingrained in the daily life of today’s cities, and asks whether we might be able to imagine and practice something radically different.
