Directing Scholarship, 2008, Pierre Cardin Theater Award

 

Patrick Kennelly’s direction, design, performance, and curation in the realms of film & video, theater, installation, and performance and visual art has been presented internationally at a variety of venues.

Hailed as a “wunderkind” by esteemed critic Debra Levine, Kennelly’s 2012 creation, PATTY – a multi-platform project that included an album, website, music video, commercials, clothing, and a Pop! Musical event (featuring an all-female cast) recently received 5 L.A. Weekly Theater Award nominations including "Best Musical." It was cited in that same publication as "one of the most exhilarating eviscerations in L.A. this year. Don't miss it. GO!" (for full reviews, click here)

Kennelly's most recent projects include the short-form experimental documentary video ten minutes is two hours, shot in South Sudan.

He was a recipient of the 2008 Princess Grace Award for Theater, and has received fellowships and grants from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the City of Santa Monica, and the Center for Cultural Innovation.

Kennelly received his BFA in Film/Video at CalArts and an MFA in Theater Direction at UCLA. He is currently Co-Artistic Director at Highways, as well as serving on their board of directors. Kennelly is also Co-Artistic Director of U-N-M-A-R-K-E-D, a project dedicated to live and remote Outer-disciplinary spectacle, horror, glamour, and social justice & committed to ultra-violence through "art"
