About The Austerity Playbook

The Austerity Playbook – a new musical

How Poverty was challenged in a Freedom City.

André Pink (Dende Collective) in association with Mark O’Thomas and Andrea Vicari present a work-in-progress performance of a new jazz musical, based upon ground-breaking research by Professors Laurence Ferry and Ileana Steccolini, of how austerity unfolded in Newcastle and across the world. Located in the mythical city of Burnside in the North East of England, characters come together in a space where the human cost of austerity brings its playbook into stark view. The workshop performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the artistic team and researchers.

With the kind support of the Economic and Social Research Council, Newcastle University and Durham University
