We live in a culture of guilt. After all, we have a lot to be guilty for. This is a world where there doesn't seem to be enough space or time to say sorry. 

But let’s try anyway. 

Three performers juggle their apologies for four unapologetic hours, saying sorry over and over. Until it loses meaning. Until it gains new meaning. Until they’re sick of saying sorry. Until they have to find new ways to say sorry altogether. 

An Open Apology is an exercise in failure. To saying sorry perfectly. To saying sorry and fucking up. To saying #sorrynotsorry. To saying sorry too late. To saying sorry before it’s too late. To friends and family. To lovers and ex-lovers. To the planet. To ourselves.

This work is a part of the Basement's Season of Durational works.  Each show lasts for four hours and you are welcome to come and go as you wish and stay as little or as long as you like.

Created by Nathan Joe, George Fenn, Ravikanth Gurunathan and Rachael Longshaw-Park


Please note unfortunately the Basement Studio space is not wheelchair accessible. 

Due to the nature of durational works, there may be occasions where the space is full. This means that there may be a wait time if you arrive after 6PM, or if you have exit and wish to re-enter the show.

$15 and $20 Basement Mates tickets available for this event. Find out more about Basement Mates here.
