I BLAME YOU, TONY BLAIR!
Joonas Lahtinen u.a.
A spectre is haunting Europe – the spectre of creative economy. All the powers of Europe have entered into a holy alliance with this spectre: politicians, economists, businessmen, cultural institutions, artists… thanks to you, dear Anthony!
The one-time ”New Labour” star and Prime Minister Tony Blair’s policies have had an enormous impact on the conditions of performance production all over Europe… at least if you ask the embittered protagonist of this curious one man show. Mixing facts, fiction and fantasy, I BLAME YOU TONY BLAIR! vividly throws light on the problems of being an ageing performance artist in today’s cultural and economic climate.
