A Free Masterclass with Erik Ehn: ‘What The Silence Requires Is That I Speak’
On Saturday December 1st, forty people took part in the FEED -produced Masterclass by world famous playwright and teacher Erik Ehn. Erik came to Soho Rep in conjunction with Jackie Sibblies Drury’s WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT… (Jackie was Erik’s student at Brown University when she wrote the play.) WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT…intertwines two major themes: genocide and art, two subjects Erik has spent a career examining. Erik’s masterclass was open to EVERYBODY and ANYBODY and centered on writing exercises. Ehn modeled how to talk about things for which you can’t find words.
