“John Kelly is one of my favorite performers in the whole world. It's not just that he is brilliant in so many mediums but every time I come away from seeing his work, or indeed even just speaking with him, I'm inspired to be a better artist.”— Alan Cumming

A solo performance work presented as a live memoir.

Time No Line focuses on how we can identify collective histories through the experience of an individual. This new solo performance work integrates movement, song, live drawing, and interactions with projected texts and images as the components of a live dramatic autobiographical narrative.

This work utilizes themes and details of John Kelly’s personal history as a survivor of a generation of artists that emerged out of the East Village performance scene of the 1980’s and was subsequently decimated by the AIDS pandemic. One of the goals of this work is to focus on and contribute to a rift in the larger cultural and social continuity and dialogue.
