Yermedea is the first part of the Central American sequence of Ehn's Soulographie: Our Genocides, a commemorative performance cycle in development. Consisting of 17 plays written over 20 years, the project will examine the history of the United States in the 20th century through genocides.The play will also be presented on October 13 at 3 pm at AS220's Empire Black Box, by the AntiGravity Theatre Project.

Ehn is professor of theatre arts and performance studies and is director of writing for performance at Brown. He conducts annual trips to Rwanda and Uganda with students and others to examine how art contributes to recovery from violence.
