Part performance and part activism, Ezra Dickinson‘s Mother for you I made this is aimed at activating a conversation about the failed mental health care system in America through memories of Dickinson’s childhood as he lived with and unknowingly cared for his schizophrenic mother. Dickinson’s hour-long solo is built from a series of performances he made as gifts for his mother over a seven year period.

Audiences are guided through forgotten public spaces by ushers and given a personal audio tour created by Paurl Walsh weaving conversations between Dickinson and his mother with sounds from the actual landscape.

Premiered in May 2013 in Downtown Seattle as part of Velocity Dance Center's Made In Seattle series.
