Kathleen Kelley is an Associate Professor of Dance and Technology at Montclair State University and the Artistic Director of the intermedia production company Proteo Media + Performance. Her body of creative work pushes against a modernist model of authorship and instead explores collaboration, mutual support structures, and feminist modes of community. She is interested in the effects of technological enmeshment on the body, which leads her to create dance films, interactive installations, and live performance events that incorporate digital media. She is a 2019 Gibney Work Up resident artist, a Chez Bushwick Artist in Residence in 2018, and a 2015-2016 LEIMAY Fellow. Her recent video work includes cinematography for the dance film “Future Becomes Past”, an official selection of over 12 film festivals; choreography for Maya Beiser’s music video “Air” that premiered on NPR’s First Look; and direction and cinematography for “Territory” a short poetry/dance hybrid film that was published in the TriQuarterly literary journal. Her recent performance work includes the premiere of “Frozen Baby” at the Work Up 5.1 series at Gibney Dance, “Separate Oceans”, an evening-length premiere at Theaterlab NYC, the interactive installation “Digitized Figures” at Gowanus Loft, and showcase performances in Movement Research at the Judson, the SOAK Festival, the CURRENT SESSIONS, Nimbus OFFLINE choreography series, and HATCH series amongst others. She serves on the Editorial Board of the journal “Dance Education in Process”, and mentors fellow artists in writing, production, and film development. She has a BFA in Dance and a BA in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and an MFA from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
