Kelly discovered improvisation in 2010 and instantly fell in love with the art form. She is one of the pioneers of anglophone improvisation in Brussels and in 2017, created ImproBubble to deepen and broaden the range of improv opportunities and training for the international community of the city. In 2019, Kelly quit her day job as a speechwriter in the European Commission to devote herself full time to improvisation. She still dabbles in the world of EU affairs as a trainer, delivering corporate workshops rooted in applied improvisation.
Kelly mainly performs in ImproBubble’s professional productions and with her bilingual (French-English) trio, Jeu de Balle. Kelly also teaches, directs and performs throughout Europe, both as an invited guest and on the international improv festival circuit. She is a proud member of Project Eve, a pan European collective of female improvisers, dedicated to exploring gender on and off stage.
As a language lover, Kelly relishes improvising in all her spoken languages, which to date are English, Greek and French (and just enough Italian to get by!)
