"They say death row is the place for the very worst. They build high walls, so you can't see in. The walls are getting closer now, but I can't hate myself, 'cause I'm the only one I got."
- Ramón, Death Row Prisoner
A challenging, poetic and relatable piece of physical theatre in the round. On Mother's Day is the story of Ramón, an endearing and friendly inmate, who spends his life running from violence only to find it within himself. The script is based on seven years of conversations with convicts on death row. Ekata Theatre's newest piece uses their unique style of engaging visual storytelling, humour, and ensemble work to present a hard-hitting critique of the dehumanisation of the victims in the capital punishment system.
