Marcos Ariel Hourmann is the first and only doctor to be convicted for practicing euthanasia in Spain. “I Will Celebrate My Death” is a documentary theater production (tickets here) with Hourmann himself about why (in 2005) he have a lethal injection to an 82-year-old woman named Carmen.
Hourmann is staging his own trial — on a stage. Eight audience members sit on the spartan stage as the doctor recounts his story. The performance ends with the “jury members” writing down their verdict on a piece of paper. Responses have been overwhelmingly “not guilty,” but there have been a handful of “guilty” verdicts.
