Details from DPT: Virtuosic solo performer Kane Smego explores race, identity, and language in his one-man show. Poetry, hip-hop, and storytelling join forces in his tale of growing up a white boy in the South with a black father figure and a love of hip-hop. Now an international spoken word artist, musician, and educator, Smego’s poetic reflection asks us to take a closer look at ourselves and our society.
