The Austerity Playbook: how poverty was challenged in a freedom city

Wednesday, 1 November 2017
19:45 to 21:45
Northern State, Newcastle

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.

This workshop performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the artistic team and researchers.
