VICKEY CURTIS ISN’T SORRY
by Vickey Curtis
At what point does “sorry” creep into our vocabulary? And how can we stop saying it? This performance explores the distance between a three-year-old constantly asking “why”, to a 33-year-old always saying “sorry”. How do we say sorry and what spaces do we say it in? When does it lose all meaning? What happen when we keep apologising for ourselves and what happens when we stop saying sorry. Vickey Curtis isn’t sorry for her presence anymore and either should you be.
Place: Vickey’s home in D8 (address will be sent to those who purchase tickets)
