My performance work has taken me all over the country. I have toured with Rude Mechs (Lipstick Traces), Jomama Jones/Daniel Alexander Jones (Blood:Shock:Boogie), and The Intergalactic Nemesis (a live action graphic novel). I have also performed my own solo dance/theatre work in NYC (HERE Arts Center), St. Paul (Penumbra Theatre), and Seattle (New City Theatre). In Austin, in addition to Frontera productions, I have had the good fortune of performing with some of the city’s most successful theatre companies including ZACH (Angels in America, Spring Awakening), Salvage Vanguard (Tilt Angel), and Capital T (There is a Happiness that Morning Is, Detroit, The Dumb Waiter, The Strangerer, Song About Himself). I also have my own production company, Jason Phelps & Co., which creates original work integrating performers and non-performers to build Community (FEAST of my HEART, In His Shoes-The Father/Son Project, and The Community Cafe).

“… Kelly Khun on vocals, adds the icing on the red velvet cake… With a sound that pulls from the origins of hip hop, the alleyways of the Crescent City, the grease and grime of an old-school soul review, and all seven of the deadly sins” – The Austin Chronicle
