‘An apology for suicide’, she said. 
‘What?’, he replied.
‘An Apology for Suicide, that’s the title.’ ‘
You want people to come and see it, don’t you?’
‘Yes, lots of people,’ she said.
‘Nobody wants to see An Apology for Suicide!’

‘In Belgium there are three people suicides each day. Worldwide we’re talking three per second. More men than women. It’s a taboo subject.’ ‘Taboos belong with other taboos. Not in a title.’ 

He closed his ears and she walked on stage.

An Apology for Suicide is about a young woman who desperately wants to be able to live but is continuously flirting with the idea of taking her own life.
 

Jozefien Mombaerts about the performance :
“The title is fierce, but I have the feeling that there is sometimes 'a plea for suicide' in society. By the society in which we live, because the subject is either dismissed or dismissed as abnormal, by the judgments. I just want to make it negotiable.”
