Presented by Warwick Arts Centre in collaboration with the University of Warwick’s
Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning.
“In mass media coverage of the domestic War on Terror, some things ‘look staged.’ No wonder, for throughout modern history civil defence has been
deeply implicated with performance, pretence and scripted pretexts.” Mashing up documentary film, devised theatre and audience interaction, The
Drill looks at emergency preparedness scenarios to consider today’s anxieties around security and terrorism.
University of Warwick graduates (Barrel Organ Theatre Company, Clown Funeral, Emergency Chorus and Breach) come together to curate a festival of theatre. Through panels, performances and discussions, they address questions surrounding the complex world we live in today.
