Jude Kelly

Jude Kelly is currently the Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre, Britain’s largest cultural institution. A great space to direct as it involves small and large performances and installations, theatre, music and other artworks. The shows vary from classical performances to World Press exhibition. No-one better to have the job than Jude of course. She turned up calm and with one of those smiles that makes everyone feel at ease. I meet people in my job that are not half as busy as Jude, yet they seem to want to give the impression that life has to move fast and their time is valuable. Jude is a woman in true demand, yet when she agrees to give you her time she is dedicated to that and offers you all her attention when in your company. Some people should be born with 8 arms, two heads and the ability to spread themselves over several of continents at the same time. Jude is one of these people, one of her is just not enough. However, she may be a little harder to photograph if she’s hanging out in several of continents at the same time. She’d be a great musical director with 8 arms though…
