The Alta Arts presents What’s in a Name? by Houston-based writer and performer Banke Awopetu. Through spoken word poetry, videography, dance, photography, and live music, What’s in a Name? confronts the ways in which names shape how we see ourselves and each other.
Awopetu majored in Drama and African/African-American studies at the University of Virginia, later returning to her hometown of Rochester, New York where she earned a Master’s Degree in Adolescent Education. A newly minted Houston resident, Awopetu has also done commissioned work for the Houston Museum of African-American Culture and Houston African-American library.
