THE FORGIVENESS PROJECT

FORGIVENESS_development banner

In this affecting new work, The Good Room ask; to who are you sorry …and what can you never forgive?

Guilt and grudges; pain and redemption; grade 3 crushes and grand departures.

Following sell out seasons of I Want To Know What Love Is and I Should Have Drunk More Champagne, The Good Room presents the next in a triptych of performance works created from ‘crowd-sourced’ content anonymously submitted by the public.

Drawing on sources as diverse as Derrida, self-help psychology, cognitive science, and pop’s greatest hits, The Forgiveness Project explores the multiple truths of apology, accountability and absolution – not only for the people who surround us, but also for ourselves.

The Forgiveness Project is currently in development with the support of Brisbane Powerhouse, and has previously been supported by Metro Arts and the Australia Council for the Arts. 

The Forgiveness Project is currently in development and is available to tour late 2017.
We welcome inquiries from future presenters.

I’VE BEEN MEANING TO ASK YOU

In a collaboration with an ensemble of young people, The Good Room puts power in the hands of those who’ll have to clean up our mess.

This is a work full of questions. Asked by young people. Answered anonymously by adults. In a playground-come-battleground, The Good Room – in partnership with an ensemble of small people – strikes up a competition between what you’ve been told, versus what you know, versus what you want to believe.

Turning a ‘crowd-sourced’ process into an ‘answer-seeking’ adventure, this work by young people – for adults – places the audience dead-centre in a call-and-response theatrical event from the generation up next.

I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You is currently in development and is available to tour late 2017.
We welcome inquiries from potential co-producers and future presenters.
