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.

OWED TO a homeless man in london (23 years ago)
OWED BY me

I ended up in January (23 years ago) living on the streets of London. I had no plan, but that was where I was going to live. I met an old man with no teeth, around a fire in an alley, he said he had come to London in his youth, an that once on the streets, it was very hard to get away. He advised me to go back to my hometown and live on the streets there, because I knew the area and had friends there. So I went back to my hometown and as a consequence was only homeless for 3-4 weeks. That man saved my life and my future.

DEBT NUMBER lews004
NATURE OF DEBT Emotional, Financial, Social

I was raised as teenager with a complete sense of entitlement (my own choice) and I am often encouraged by financial organisations to indulge in whatever whims for purchases I might have. I have an attitude of take take take; yet I am a caring and thoughtful person (reasonably so) . I owe so much I can’t pay near enough back - thank god I am advised by scriptures that my willingness to do so is/will be acceptable.

many years ago pre 1929 my grandchild with type 1 diabetes would have died as so little was known about replacing insulin- all diabetes sufferers will never be able to thank these pioneers enough. On behalf of them all- thank you

DEBT NUMBER MAN268
NATURE OF DEBT Emotional

So sorry that I couldn't save you Hannah. If I could I would have. So sorry Rachel that you have paid for this all your life. I would have saved you too if I could. My 2 1/2 year old daughter was burned to death in an accident at a buddhist monastrery 31 years ago. Her 5 year old sister had to look on alone. She has lived a life full of the repercussions of that loss.
