Background


Ekata Theatre is an international theatre company producing physical performance in London, Helsinki and beyond.


They aim to make relatable, resonant and relevant work that transcends linguistic and national borders.


Ekata was founded in 2017 by director, choreographer and performer Erika Eva.


Erika's work has been compared to Complicité and Isango Ensemble (London Pub Theatre, 2018) for her inventive use of prop-play and transformations.


Her pieces feature a blend of devising and precise choreography using object manipulation, hand-held lights, and always with a touch of humour.


Synopsis


"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.


It is a visually arresting ensemble performance about childhood, identity, and lost time.


The script is based on seven years of letters between the writer Saaramaria Kuitinen and convicts on death row.


Now, Ekata Theatre's newest piece takes this material and uses a 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.
