Toronto - Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie (CLC) Co-Artistic Directors Laurence Lemieux and Bill Coleman are pleased to present an eclectic and daring new season of four new and returning stage works for 2013-14. As well, the "joint will be jumping" as the acclaimed CLC hosts many more shows by great dance and theatre artists from Toronto and beyond at The Citadel, its home in Regent Park. Their next show features legendary choreography James Kudelka in a duet performance...
CLC's Resident Choreographer, James Kudelka has been working with the puppet Malcolm since 2009, when Malcolm took a role in Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie's Living Dances program in a short work by Kudelka set to an aria from Bach's St. Matthew Passion. This performance inspired Kudelka to include Malcolm in another short appearance in AllOneWord. He now creates a work exclusively for Malcolm in this intimate "duet" to the live performance and original composition by pianist Dustin Peters. Malcolm is presented to the live performance and original composition by pianist Dustin Peters and choreographed in collaboration with Bill Coleman. Malcolm premieres at the intimate Mimi Herrndorf studio-theatre at The Citadel on February 19–23, 2014.
