SO SORRY, is curated as a two-part event consisting of the performance Deeply Really Truly (Martini/Ramadan 2013) and the conversation piece Host Club (Schwald 2008).
Deeply Really Truly is a performance of public apology speeches collected from the last three decades. Host Club additionally gives stage to a discussion of more personal, local and current issues. The derivation point for this part of the evening is the topic of public apologies in the local Dutch context, with a special focus on apologies that did or did not happen as a consequence of colonial history and entanglement of the Netherlands.
Special guest and social anthropologist Markus Balkenhol speaks about his research on the cultural heritage of slavery in Amsterdam, and performance artist Quinsy Gario explores apology in a performative intervention.
