Collective Attention: Anarchic Action
June 2021 - August 2021

Collective Attention: Anarchic Action is a project gathering of 8 action-based performance artists. It is a culmination. Emerging from a longing to be in-relation, this assembly has been formed and held in arduous times. It is a chance to commune and confer. Through weekly co-learning sessions the artists have shared methodologies and strategies. It is a non-hierarchical environment where each artist has been able to both teach and learn. Together they see what can be found in the with, to and between,

The ensemble collective includes: Benjamin Ivy, Jess Heritage, Jasper Llewellyn, Monstera Deliciosa, selina bonelli and is activated by Eleanor Dalzell Jenyns and kate stonestreet. It has been made possible by the generous offer of time and space provided by Ugly Duck.

On the 14th August the collective performed Sites of Union at Ugly Duck’s Garage space. The performance developed over 4 hours, with all artists performing simultaneously. Each artists attention waxed and waned, with surges of activity and images evolving slowly.

CA:AA was initiated by kate stonestreet and Eleanor Dalzell Jenyns
