John Kelly is a performance and visual artist.


John Kelly Performance supports the creative work of John Kelly and his collaborators. These solo and group dance theatre works dramatize the lives of characters – whether real or fictional – revealing their dreams, foibles, and humanity. These works are sometimes directly autobiographical, and inspired by personal, cultural, and political realities.


His visual art relates to his performance work as it is frequently self-reflective, and includes drawing, painting, photography, and video.
