MOCA London will show video and photographs: the exhibition addresses the reach of theatre into everyday life and the dependence of acting in preparations that constitute applied policy on civil defence and disaster management

About

The title for this exhibition comes from a Casualties Union (CU) training script for displaying the different emotions associated with disaster; in this case 'shock'. The CU is a voluntary organisation that has existed since the Second World War, pioneering the use of acting casualties to provide added 'realism' to civil defence and rescue training exercises. For over 60 years, they have developed unique methodologies enabling actors to simulate 'authentically' both the emotional shock of disaster and physical trauma. Through working with the Casualties Union West Midlands region to produce exercises which test and expand their methodology, the exhibition addresses the reach of theatre into everyday life and the dependence of acting in preparations that constitute applied policy on civil defence and disaster management.
