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 360235915251412
NATURE OF DEBT relational
OWED TO Sophie Camu
OWED BY Laurence Shorter

I made a declaration of commitment in May or June 2013 that amounted to a commitment to marriage, and I knew it would be understood in this way, although I said it in different words. I said I was coming off the fence, and that I had made a decision; I knew this sounded strong and I believed I meant it, while also secretly doubting it. I gave this promise knowing full well that Sophie wanted to find a partner with whom she could have children and that she felt that time was against her. This declaration having worked in achieving my goal of getting back together, I was then unable to carry out my commitment as promised. I even pretended to myself (and to her at moments) that I hadn't made it in the first place. We dated as boyfriend and girlfriend, slept together, visited friends, went on holiday and carried on with daily life for 10 full months of her fertility during which time I did not propose, move in, conceive or otherwise act in a way that would have delivered on my promise. Unable to fulfill my original declaration, I finally asked her to release me from it and a few weeks later told her that I was unable to take the next step together at this time and that I had to let her go.

OWED TO teresa and jess
OWED BY clea

We had a project that was co-developed we made money from it and it was kept for over 2 years in clea's bank account. when we went to ask for it be divided by 3 she became angry that we dare suggest it be split into 3, though the 3 of us were at the core of the project. this ended a 10 year friendship. in the end money destroys everything family, friends, security, lives, etc. I hope the floor she had installed in her home with the money rots. (oops not sure if i can say this, but i wanted to release my anger at her selfishness).

This is the week, twelve years on, when my daughter finished paying her student loan- and that was before the era of course fees. My grandson is now about to go up to Uni with, potentially, £40,000 of fees by the time he graduates, at a time when the government - through outsourcing, de-professionalising, digitising, mis-use of the minimum (now seen as standard) wage, misuse of European migration to force down wage costs, are making sure that very few of his generation will ever earn enough to start paying it off! Recent news on this front confirms the whole shambles this has become.

OWED TO Me
OWED BY Those who had the mission to allow me to bloom,

I am gifted. My mother reproached me of been different. Of been like my father. She made me feel ashamed to be who I am meant to be. I want to be free of this feeling. I want to come clean of this. She did it out of ignorance. I am imploring the Holy Mother of All, the Holy Father of All, give me my life back. Give me the life I was meant to have. This concerns all aspects of my life, financial, emotional, spiritual, social, personal. Give me the life that is out there for me. Let me bloom to my fullest. Let me be daring. Let me. Let me. Please.
