Kane's performances cover the spectrum of emotion and energy, from light and upbeat lyricism to deep introspection and social commentary. As both a poet and a Hip Hop artist, Kane has the ability to connect with audiences through storytelling, verse, or song and can tailor performances to fit the theme of an event.
From Hawaii to Berlin, Kane has featured at such historic venues as the Bonarroo Music and Arts Festival, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Da Poetry Lounge, and the birthplace of Slam Poetry--Chicago's Green Mill. He has also performed his work at the Shriver Report Live hosted by Atlantic Magazine (as seen on C-SPAN) and the Aspen Institute's ThinkXChange 2014.
Utilizing his own innovative curriculum, known as YouTh ink., Kane's writing and performance workshops lead participants in exploring their identities and telling their story through the written and spoken word. Workshops can be customized to fit a desired age-group or to touch on topics being covered in a course or conference. The YouTh ink. Curriculum utilizes culturally-relevant pedagogy that is learner-centered and designed to benefit participants in five specific ways:
Enhance emotional literacy
Facilitate identity exploration
Refine writing and analytical skills
Develop performance and public speaking competency
Lectures and Presentations
Sharing his own personal journey from being raised by a single mother to co-founding a youth arts nonprofit, Kane's lectures discuss leadership, education, and allyship as well as the role that our stories play in all of these areas.
Kane has been a keynote speaker at the Global Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C., a presenter at TEDX UNC, the Civicus World Assembly, and other prestigious conferences and events across the country.
