Paloma McGregor

Paloma is a Harlem-based movement artist, writer and organizer. Recent choreography credits include Amadeus and A Civil War Christmas (Center Stage), The House that Will Not Stand (Berkeley Repertory and Yale Repertory) A Winter’s Tale and Spunk (California Shakespeare Theatre), Four Electric Ghosts (The Kitchen), Children of Killers (Castillo Theater), Indomitable: James Brown (SummerStage), For a Barbarian Woman (Fordham University) and Blood Dazzler (Harlem Stage). She co-founded Angela’s Pulse with her sister, director Patricia McGregor, to create and produce collaborative performance work dedicated to building community and illuminating bold, new stories. They are currently creating a new musical about the supreme court case Loving v. Virginia, with playwright Marcus Gardley and composer Justin Ellington. Paloma is also developing Building a Better Fishtrap, an iterative performance project that examines what we take with us, leave behind and return to reclaim; the project is inspired by her 88-year-old father’s vanishing fishing tradition. Paloma toured internationally for six years with Urban Bush Women and has danced in work by Liz Lerman, Cassie Meador, Christal Brown, Jill Sigman and others.
