Kelley has a gift for weaving the comic into the tragic. Her scripts are full of puns, poetry and parody. She often plays the central character of her films herself, heavily made-up and participating in a burlesque world of imagery that is both highly stylized and frequently sexualised. What emerges from her highly entertaining works is a sensibility that is beautiful and disturbing. There is an acute sympathy for the rudderless victims of fate, underwritten by an exploration of the cultural and historical construction of that fate. Trust us; this is going to be a great show.
