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 Dale, Skyla and Adam

I look back and see how I spent so much time trying to keep things organized, clean and done instead of time spent with my children listening, sharing and enjoying the world around us. I regret the time lost that can not be reclaimed.

My Grandad, you were moved into a house 18 months ago before you died because Grandma passed away + you needed help with your Alzheimers. Because it was too hard, I never visited you at the house. Sorry you forgot about me. How about another game of cards? Love Laurie

OWED TO Grandmother
OWED BY Granddaughter

20 years old, single, living in an B+B, my maternal grandmother offered me her spare bedroom for me to live in. I was pregnant. I gave birth in the local hospital. Her house was my sons first home. We stayed until we were ready to move on. I will make sure I make my gratitude explicitly clear before it's too late. I now have a grandchild of my own. 5 generations.
