A hip-hop odyssey through race and identity
Poetry, rap, and storytelling join forces in a tale of race, whiteness, language, and Hip Hop as a global community. Writer-performer and UNC graduate Kane Smego draws on his experience as an international touring poet, Hip Hop artist, youth educator, and native of the American South in this virtuosic one-man show.
A production of StreetSigns Center for Literature and Performance, with funding provided by the North Carolina Arts Council and the Paul Green Foundation.
Due to heavy themes and some language use, we recommend this show for ages 15 and up.

Talkbacks and Pass the Mic Post-Show
In addition to our usual “second act” of conversation, we’ll be celebrating the rich performing arts communities of the Triangle and beyond as Kane shares the stage with various performance poetry groups from Durham, Chapel Hill, and Greensboro to feature a 30-minute showcase after select showings of Temples of Lung and Air. Make sure to stick around after the main show to hear from some of the area’s most electrifying poets!
