Be part of the vision and watch Sokeo Ros deliver a powerful solo performance on night two of RIPR’s 20 of Years of Sound + Vision stage. We are proud to welcome Sokeo to The Power of Storytelling portion of our event and are excited to see his innovative and educational performance that weaves storytelling and movement into a dazzling art piece.
Sokeo is the director of the hip-hop dance program at Everetts School and has taught at many Rhode Island institutions. He also directs the hip-hop based troupe, Case Closed!, which he founded in 2004. A hallmark of his work is his unique way of telling stories that combines both hip-hop and theater.
He has received two Rhode Island State Council of the Arts grants. One to develop a hip-hop theater piece, Culture Shock, and the last one to work on a project called “From Refugee Camp to Project” which tells of his experiences of being born in a Thailand refugee camp and coming to the United States to live in an impoverished neighborhood.
See Sokeo perform Saturday, May 19th on Night Two of 20 Years of Sound + Vision: The Power of Storytelling.
