Clothes Get in the Way – a solo show with Kendall Kelly
Saturday, Sept. 28
At the Center for Sex & Culture
Clothes Get in the Way is a one person multimedia and live presentation that incorporates video, characterizations, props, monologue, costume, singing and movement to explore sexuality, body image, gender, body history, and spirituality.
The tone ranges from irreverent & comedic to deep and cerebral. It is preferably in a small environment which lends itself to an intimacy not usually experienced in larger venues. Kendall does not amplify his voice but present it unfiltered by technology which also creates a space or depth with his image and/or voice being presented through media at the same time. He performs mostly naked and invite the audience to remove clothing if they feel comfortable doing so.
The intent of the presentation is to provide and open atmosphere to explore ideas about body and personal body history within oneself and others.
Kendall is best known for his music videos and appearances in many international publications such as OUT , 100% BEEF and Bear Magazine, adult videos and television programs such as Craig Ferguson, and MTVs Logo Television.He has won a best short video award for his music video Hip Hop Dyke at the Rochester Gay film festival, had a number one single on Sirius Out-Q satellite radio and have produced video and performance work with an artists residency.
