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 360234815221311
OWED TO me
OWED BY others

Although this debt apparently springs new again and again, it is actually a long carried, back-bending burden of feeling misunderstood, unappreciated, unacknowledged, discriminated against, overlooked etc.... And even when and if it may be true, I welcome the opportunity to write it off once and for all. Thank you. I had a picture of my great grandparents- the only copy, and I spilled ink on it. I brought it to be repaired, but it was lost in the shop. Owed to my family by Sarah

DEBT NUMBER MAN001

Owed to anyone who has ever died or suffered in violent xxx, under a flag or at the end of a weapon – in the name of place, of honour. And to those who also refused to fight, who stood apart in the name of peace, who were punished even killed – for their stance. Each follows their own conscience. Let us burn our judgements!

NATURE OF DEBT Emotional
OWED TO My friends Mum Cheryl
OWED BY Myself

I was meant to be looking after a friends family dog and staying at their house in the courntry. However I was so involved with my new boyfriend that I couldn't bear to be apart from him for more than a few days at a time. So I curtailed the time I could stay at the lovely house with the dog. Their mum was very very upset that I'd changed my plans and let them down. It put a wedge between me and my friend. I wish I could say sorry but the Mum, Cheryl passed away before I had a chance to.

OWED TO Cydney
OWED BY David

I want to end my marriage eloquently so as to stop the emotional and spiritual drain on me. I want to positive we shared to be encapsulated in the time we shared together, yet the time was finite. We need a new paradigm to embrace new opportunities individually and together in any future dealings. Amen!!!
