Kelly Malone is a language artist and has performed and published her work in Aotearoa (New Zealand) Australia, Canada, Denmark, Italy, North America, and the UK.
Reign of contexti: a libretto was a finalist for the Leslie Scalapio Award, 2016-17. The play is a visual, percussive, and tactile performance. Scored for writing, cut and woven, with the breath as text in transliteration, the libretto re-scores how poetics and the politics of language are enacted.
Reign of Contexti: Venice, was performed in Venice, 2017, at Anima Mundi, alongside the Biennale. The performance included a rain of her contexti (hand shredded handwritten journals) using a Venice fan.
