PlayMakers Presents The StreetSigns Production

Temples of Lung & Air

By Kane Smego (who has also performed) Directed by Joseph Megel

A hip-hop odyssey through race and identity

Poetry, rap, and storytelling join forces in a tale of race, identity, and growing up between left and right in the American South. Writer-performer and UNC graduate Kane Smego draws on his experience as an international touring poet, hip-hop artist, youth educator, and Durham, N.C. native in this virtuosic one-man show. Stream this encore presentation of the show that had the entire Triangle talking in 2018.
