Kelly has spent ten years as a writer, theatre-maker, and dramaturg. Her work has been performed everywhere from the West End to Off-Broadway, and has been a finalist for the OffWestEnd Award.
Kelly's preoccupations are with the obstruction of women's voices, how voices (both the literal and metaphorical kind) accrue power, and where the possibilities for disruption lie. She wrote her MA dissertation on queerness and voice, and is increasingly curious about where voice begins to trouble the boundaries of the self-contained body and question the distinction between (or even the existence of) individuals.

ALL THE DEAD STARS was a writing commission from Blue Goat Theatre, and was made in collaboration with choreographer Aaron Samuel Davies and composer Augustin Gressier.
