The FINAL Open Stage of the season: June 6, 2014
Everett presents Open Stage, a monthly event for young performers featuring house dance troupe, Case Closed!, and hosted by Everett’s, Sokeo Ros & Bianca Bevilacqua. Open Stage happens on the first Friday of each month from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m., immediately following the Friday Night Live comedy show at 7 p.m.
Headliner, member of Everett and Director of Case Closed!, Sokeo Ros will show an excerpt from his new work-in-progress, From Refugee Camp to Project, a solo show about a young man born in a Thai refugee camp in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge. In America, he finds himself trapped in a low-income neighborhood filled with poverty and violence, courted by gangs, and at the mercy of the explosive moods of his traumatized parents. Through hip hop, traditional Khmer dance, spoken word, and video, Sokeo shares how self-expression helped him rise above his past and discover the beauty in life.
The aim of Open Stage is to give local youth performers a forum to show their talents in front of a live audience. Each show features a different headliner and local hip hop theater troupe, Case Closed!. Audience members will have the opportunity to sign up for a 5-minute performance slot before each show.
Doors open @ 8pm! $5 @ the door. 9 Duncan Ave., Providence, RI 02906 (401)831-9479
