Contribute to the Book of Debts

Is there something you owe, or are owed, that you would like to draw a line under? A sum of money, an action left undone or a word left unsaid? Or something owed to or by a third party, individual or institution?

You can enter your debt and its story - into the Book of Debts here, now. All contributions are anonymous and you can add as many debts as you like.

The Book of Debts will then be recited and burned, one volume per location, as part of the final performance in each city, in a symbolic act of absolution.

To follow what happens to the Books and their remains, enter your email address when asked and we will invite you to the tour finale in 2015.

DEBT NUMBER fabrica025

I feel a debt for experiencing the show, because i now the funding does not compensate for the time and effort invested. I'd say I feel a debt for not living a more sustainable life, being too enmeshed in the way things are and without the resources to make necessary adjustments. Living that way would be a gift to all, of sorts

DEBT NUMBER
OWED BY alison paddon

I owe a debt of gratitude to my parents for the many happy memories that I have of my childhood and their constant love and support. Mum went back to work to support me through university, Dad helped with DIY and decorating when I got my first home. I cannot count the times that they volunteered for babysitting duties and how they put their lives on hold to be there for me. They were always there with wise words when it was needed and I didn’t have to look far for the best role models. I am grateful for all the sacrifices that they made so that I could have the opportunities that they had been denied. I am grateful too that I had the chance to tell them how much they meant to me. I hope that in return I have made them proud.

NATURE OF DEBT Emotional
OWED TO Pamela
OWED BY Me

I shouldn't have made you cry that day. I was only thinking of myself, and not the fact that other people have emotions too. I knew you were fucking scared of me. I could still apologize to you now, but it's been ten years, and I am still full of pride.
