We are surrounded by and embedded in systems, both natural and human-made – from climate and the ecosystem to the economy or even society itself. Many of today’s significant issues emerge from the interplay between such systems.

Taking systems science as its basis, Best Festival Ever: How to Manage a Disaster is both interactive and performative – part theatre show, part performance lecture and part board game. Its audience gathers around a table, working together to deliver a unique music festival, from planning to execution, and doing their best to prevent the system from collapsing into chaos.

David Finnigan, Nathan Harrison, Nikki Kennedy, Rachel Roberts and David Shaw
