Dancing with Light – Kathleen Kelley

For our Fall 2023 season, In the Eye of a Dream, ST/DE has reconceived Frida and Magritte, Magritte as an immersive visual experience, fitting for Anna Sokolow’s homages to two painters. Our collaborator, Kathleen Kelley of Proteo Media, has designed projections to transform the intimate white-box theater at Theaterlab into a living environment, to draw the audience fully into the inner world of the dances.

Kathleen is a choreographer, media artist, and the Artistic Director of Proteo Media + Performance, a company producing art at the intersections of technology and the body. Her experimental films have been featured at venues such as Gibney Center, TheaterLAB, Movement Research, Judson Church, Gowanus Loft, and Triskelion Arts; in festivals such as the Oregon Short Film Festival, Newark International Film Festival, and the Utah Dance Film Festival; and online at the Triquarterly Literary Magazine, NPR’s First Look, Rutger’s University, Philly Fringe, and Whitman College, among many others. Collaborative interdisciplinary relationships are at the heart of her practice, and she has partnered with artists such as zavé martohardjono, Christian von Howard, Bree Breeden, Paul Rabinowitz, Sarah Rose Nordgren, Janessa Clark, Pioneers Go East!, the Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble and others. She is a 2019 Gibney Work Up resident, a Chez Bushwick Artist in Residence in 2018, and a 2015-2016 LEIMAY Fellow. She received her MFA in Dance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and her BFA from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro where she also received the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award. She serves as a Chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance at Montclair State University.
