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.
