“A dreamlike quality that fluctuated from playful to serious; lightheartedness to nightmarish.” – Harlem World, Feb. 12, 2013, Walter Rutledge
Malcolm Low is a New York-based artist born in Chicago, IL. He is interested in taking real life situations and interactions – from the intensity of relationships to commonplace activities – and transposing them onto performing bodies and into a performance atmosphere. He aims to use different disciplines and art forms to give breadth to his choreography, and to lengthen his creative life. Among others Low has performed with Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal; Ballet British Columbia; Ronald K. Brown; Stephen Petronio; Complexions; Zvi Gotheiner and Dancers; Reggie Wilson; Crystal Pite/Kidd Pivot; and Bill T. Jones. Low currently works with Ralph Lemon, David Thomson and Patricia Hoffbauer. Low’s work includes The House That Jack Built (2009); Catch n Release Variations #35, Harlem Stage/Emoves (2009); Luscious Colors of an Unclear Canvas, Wave Rising Series (2009/2011); Pushing Against Sisyphus, Brooklyn Arts Exchange (2011); and One Forgotten Moment, Ailey II (2012). Low’s awards and residencies include Fund for New Work/Harlem Stage Gatehouse Grant (2009); BAX Passing It Down Award (2011); Choreographic Fellowship in Robert Battle’s New Directions Choreography Lab, Alvin Ailey (2011); LMCC’s Manhattan Community Arts Fund (2012, 2014, 2015); and LMCC’s Process Space (2014).
