Say You’re Sorry (2019-2023) is a series of participatory performances and installations about forgiveness. The four initial shows— Shadowboxing, Hard Feelings: A Show About Grudges, Truce, and Forgive Or Forget— led first to The Say You’re Sorry Workbook (2020) and then to the culminating work (coming 2023).



Shadowboxing
is an interactive movement/sound piece about painful and cathartic processes of self-forgiveness.
