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

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.

OWED TO Education educatio education
OWED BY myself and three of my children

I managed to go to College and further and higher education through the ability to pay the fees. But this was in the '70s recently doing more study I was left with a debt for me .. I worked my way through. But now aged 60+ and retired from teaching its not to be collected any more except through taxes. For my children aged 30 ,25 and 19 its ongoing through their working lives. I worked to aid my studies but at least I was able to earn a living wage. For them its harder, its important to experience the passing on of lifelong learning to enable people to have wider choices. Meet others who can show them different ways of living. and give hope.

OWED TO me
OWED BY ex-partner

My moved my whole life to one town to another for the benefit of my (ex) girlfriend. I sold my home and invested it into another house in joint name with my girlfriend. Over 12 years I rebuilt that new house; the process depleted me, physically and emotionally, and also financially. When the relationship ended, I lost everything, and was left with the burden of all the debt. Now I have no home.
