Master of Disaster
MASTER OF DISASTER focuses on the world of disaster management presenting a bizarre picture of contingency planning and bureaucratic control experiments. On an almost weekly basis in Europe, a range of both minor and major disasters are rehearsed: power cuts, widespread flooding, nuclear meltdowns. They range from training exercises for the local fire brigade to large-scale enactments across several states and involving 10,000 volunteers or more. In the company of the main protagonists, we delve into the most Kafka-esque aspects of these fantastic, fictional worst-case scenarios.
