This is not a drill.
I repeat; this is not a drill
Water is rising.
Get ready for the plunge of your life.
Globally, there are more than 4 billion people who can’t swim. As an island in a period of intense global warming, lutruwita/Tasmania is a high-risk zone for those without water confidence.
LPA® are sending two of their most qualified emergency instructors, equipped with revolutionary swimming machines to prepare you for the plunge.
Prepare for the Plunge is a training session with the theatre of the absurd at its core and tackles the possibility of a future submersion with both scientific fact and humour.
You will be guided and immersed, perhaps literally, in a series of exercises to practice the mechanics of emergency care.
This participatory work plunges audiences into a comical, yet unsettling, atmosphere, reflecting rising anxiety in anticipation of a real disaster and heightening our senses of hope and adaptation.
