  • Sunday, Jan, 24 2016 02:00 PMFrom Refugee Camp to Project had its world premiere at the Ko Festival of Performance in Amherst, MA this past summer. The work tells Sokeo Ros’ story in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge genocide. In America, he finds himself courted by gangs, trapped in a ghetto, surrounded by poverty and violence and the explosive moods of his traumatized parents. Through hip-hop dance, traditional Khmer dance, personal narrative, and video, Sokeo takes us on his journey from Asia to America, from housing projects to artistic projects, and an epic return to the Cambodian village his family was driven from in the 1970s. 

    Sokeo says, “This story is mine. It is a story of struggle, pain and progress. It is a story that will shed some light on the lives of Cambodian Americans, also known as “Khmericans,” and what they went through as immigrants of the United States. It is also my story of how self-expression and art have helped me surmount my past and discover the beauty in life, becoming an artist that is passionate about giving back to the community, locally and globally.” 

    From Refugee Camp to Project was funded in part by grants from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts.

    The New England Foundation for the Arts is pleased to announce the inaugural grant recipients of the Rebecca Blunk Fund: Elizabeth James-Perry (Aquinnah Wampanoag) of Dartmouth, MA, and Sokeo Ros of Providence, RI. James-Perry and Ros will receive awards of $2,500 each in unrestricted support to support the creation of new work and for professional development.
