Featuring Sokeo Ros and Rose Weaver

On November 9th, FirstWorks spotlighted performances by two Providence artists as part of The Kennedy Center’s “Arts Across America” national series. Watch now:
UnMuted Tears with award-winning actress, singer, and writer Rose Weaver, accompanied by Delbert Collins performing from Pot Au Feu
Weaver has the rare ability to prompt laughter that turns into tears.
And when she sings, hearts break and angels cry

—Patti Hartigan, Boston Globe

Rhode Island’s celebrated spinner of tales uses songs, prose and dramatic storytelling to advocate, inspire and celebrate positive self-esteem.

Cambodian Lullaby with storyteller, Hip Hop dance educator, and scholar Sokeo Ros performing from Providence College’s Moore Hall
Excerpts from Ros’ autobiographical solo show From Refugee Camp to Project incorporate dance/movement to tell his redemptive story of a refugee’s migration into a world where assimilation to gang violence and dance are the only ways to cope with day-to-day trauma.

Hosted by FirstWorks Executive Director, Kathleen Pletcher
