Joseph Connelly is a performance artist, dancer and graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His most recent works include Pound and Scrub, performed with Jason Lee; Binding, a year long performance in Madison, where “a man removes the staples from a telephone pole then wraps the pole in homemade bandages on the last Friday of every month”; Big Raw One, an installation in a men’s bathroom in the form of a room-sized Scrabble game; a dancer in Maureen Janson’s choreography, The Pollyanna Project; and as an actor/researcher in a performance response to David Mamet’s Oleanna. He is also a video editor working with local Madison artists to produce, edit and document their art on video.
Jason Lee earned his MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and his BFA from Kent State University. Jason is a multi-media sculptor and installation artist who incorporates a wide variety of materials and techniques into his oddly humorous constructions and presentations.
