Kane Stonestreet is known as a cryer, a lover and a pure spiral. Through their multidisciplinary performance practice they are interested in inhabiting alternative modes of attention; slower ways of being. stonestreet’s playful meanderings include dancing with chains and ice, carving a spiral into their chest, pressing their body to the concrete and reaching out to you. These actions may take place in the city time of clubs, galleries, theaters and warehouses, but Stonestreet’s mind is in tectonic time.
Stonestreet’s practice is based in collaboration. They have established substantial connections with Joseph Morgan Schofield, Eleanor Dalzell Jenyns among others. Their project entitled Collective Attention: Anarchic Action created a space for seven artists to lead and learn from each other’s practices. The four hour performance at Ugly Duck allowed for a flow of shared actions, through which Stonestreet found new qualities of engagement and entanglement. Their ritual actions reach towards gestures of radical softness and forms of queer intimacy. It is a process of survival. stonestreet is slowly unearthing ways of being that belong to their “we” / to our “us”.
