Yermedea Raw by Erik Ehn
Yermedea Raw is part of Erik Ehn's Soulographie: Our Genocides, a commemorative performance cycle.  It is the first play in the cycle's Central American series.  95 Empire is the piece's first stop on a three venue tour that includes downtown Providence, Boston (The Factory Theatre) and New York City (La Mama Experimental Theatre Club).

The composite character alluded to in the title is loosely based on Federico Garcia Lorca's Yerma and Euripides' Medea. The play braids the experiences of Medea and Yerma into a single narrative that gives voice to the voiceless. These women contemplate the unthinkable moral question of infanticide as an alternative to seeing their children brutally murdered, raped, or otherwise destroyed by the ravages of war.

Yermedea Raw is a hybrid puppet/theatre performance that incorporates the materials of theater - sound, lights, space, time, movement, gesture, and image - to convey that which cannot be expressed otherwise.

Director Kym Moore & acclaimed Spanish puppet theatre artist Alejandra Prieto join forces to bring Erik Ehn's Yermedea to life in RAW form.

Explore, Explode, & EXPOSE our genocides.
