"From Refugee
Camp to Project"

We are pleased to offer a week of programs with the talented Sokeo Ros, whose compelling work -- and equally compelling story -- will offer Northern New Hampshire middle, high school and college students and adult audiences an opportunity to reflect on culture, heritage -- and refugees -- in new ways, and to experience hip hop dance through a fascinating lens.

Sokeo will offer school and community workshops, lecture demonstrations that incorporate excerpts from "From Refugee Camp to Project," a one-man show that tells the story of an individual who survived refugee camps, made it to the US, where he lived in a low-income neighborhood filed with gangs, poverty and violence. Through hip-hop dance, traditional Khmer dance, theater and story telling, he shares experiences and stories from his life and how he has tried to stay away from the negative aspects found within these environments.

Sokeo will work with local dancers and incorporate them into his public performance Friday, October 21.
