You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me
“They say that the unexamined life is not a life worth living. But what if examining becomes our life: is that living, or just procrastinating?” Carrie Bradshaw (2004)
You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me is a durational, one-to-one watching of Sex & The City exploring intimacy, isolation and the pervasive legacy of Carrie Bradshaw ten years after going off television. Presented in people’s homes, as public installation, and as one-to-one performances in theatre, audience members first complete a 92-question survey (adapted from each question typed by Carrie Bradshaw) and are then diagnosed with an episode of SATC which will change their lives. By hopping into bed with Brian, or even completing the survey while sipping cosmos with a strange, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me addresses the effect of television and binge watching on our sex lives, on our psyches, and in our shoes.
You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me will be presented as part of the British Council Showcase in August 2015.
Tour dates include: Sydney Opera House (Sydney), Buzzcut (Glasgow), Forest Fringe (Edinburgh), Hotel Obscura (Vienna) Ovalhouse (London), Compass Festival (Leeds), Latitude Festival (Suffolk), Add-Wood/Purex (Lisbon), Steakhouse Live (London)
