Trust Theater: Javier Avila, The Trouble with My Name

October 28, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - October 29, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28 at 7:30 PM 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 at 2 PM

In his one-man show, celebrated author, Javier Ávila, sheds light on the American Latino experience with his unique brand of poetry and satire. The high-octane, poignant, and hilarious one-man show The Trouble with My Name consolidates Ávila’s talents as a poet and professor.  It is a tour-de-force that will make audiences laugh, cry, and embrace the autobiographical journey of a man who moves between cultures.  It provides a fascinating perspective of American Latinos who struggle to dispel misconceptions about their identity and place in the world. The Trouble with My Name examines the issues of language, race, and social justice in an eye-opening performance where Ávila engages the audience as he tells the story of his life and reads poetry that illustrates what it means to be the American of the future. Ávila’s show breaks barriers and embraces the diversity of a nation whose history is rich and colorful. The message transcends boundaries of race, ethnicity, and geography. This dynamic performance by Pennsylvania’s Professor of the Year is a show you won’t want to miss.
