The second week of Ailey II 2013 New York season continues tonight at the Ailey Citigroup Theater located at 405 West 55th Street. The highly anticipated first season of Artistic Director Troy Powell runs through Sunday March 24th. The season will feature two programs entitled All New and Returning Favorites respectively; the company will present a total seven works. The All New program will feature four works, three premieres and one new production, by four emerging and established choreographers; Malcolm Low, Jessica Lang, Benoit-Swan Pouffer and Amy Hall Garner. Returning Favorites will offer three works previously presented by Ailey II by choreographers Ailey II Artistic Director Troy Powell, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Artistic Director Emerita Judith Jamison and Alvin Ailey.
Prior to the start of the season we had an opportunity to talk to choreographer Malcolm Low. Malcolm shared with us his choreographic process; artistic influences, and working with the Ailey II dancers. This is the second part of that conversation where Low discusses his choreographic process.
