James Kudelka, Resident Choreographer at Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie creates a work exclusively for the puppet Malcolm in this personal full-length “duet” with himself as performer. Malcolm is presented to the live performance and original composition by pianist Dustin Peters and choreographed in collaboration with Bill Coleman. 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. Malcolm premiered at the intimate Mimi Herrndorf studio-theatre at The Citadel in February 2014.
