Sincere Apologies

Sincere Apologies is a performance work constructed entirely from apologies – the famous, the obscure, the imagined, the speculative or forth-coming and those that begin every second email in our inboxes.

Working from lockdown in Melbourne, two artists well known for their separate documentary and verbatim theatre practices join two other artists well known for their solo and collaborative participatory works for unexpected places. Together they are making an automatic performance, an apology for their absence.

This fascinating collaboration is exploring the many types of apologies experienced in public and private life, every day. The work will test the limits of the act of apology, and perhaps move through the core of our collective regret into a place where healing and repair might become possible.
