Juliana Francis

Juliana Francis, also known as Julianna Francis or Juliana Francis-Kelly, is an American playwright and actress. She is the recipient of an Obie Award for her performance in Richard Foreman's Maria Del Bosco, and a Dramalogue Award for Reza Abdoh's The Hip-hop Waltz of Eurydice. As a performer she is best known for her work with Richard Foreman's Ontological Hysteric Theater and with the late Reza Abdoh's internationally acclaimed Dar A Luz company, of which she was a founding member. Francis-Kelly has also performed for many younger theater auteurs, including Young Jean Lee, Pavol Liska, Lear DeBessonet, as well as Whitney Biennialist filmmaker Marie Losier(in Losier's The Ontological Cowboy and Manuelle Labor—in collaboration with Guy Maddin.) After the untimely death of Reza Abdoh, Francis-Kelly began writing plays and screenplays. Her first play Go Go Go (which she also performed in) was directed by Anne Bogart, performed at PS 122 in New York and at the London International Festival of Theatre at the Institute for Contemporary Art I.C.A. Go Go Go was published by Theater Forum Magazine and T3 in Europe.
