Based in Boise, this company uses the inherent beauty of ballet vocabulary to convey the emotion and grace of life’s journey.
In July 2005, Trey McIntyre Project burst onto the national dance scene as a summer touring company. Trey McIntyre Project’s “fresh and forward-thinking choreography” (Washington Post) was an immediate sensation with both critics and audiences alike. Galvanized by overwhelming critical success during the summer tours, and an insatiable demand for national and international touring, Trey McIntyre Project launched as a full-time, year-round company in 2008–09. The company embarked on a 25-city tour across the US and abroad from its new home in Boise, ID, with commissions from three of America’s esteemed presenting organizations, and institutional support from such organizations as The MAP Fund, the National Endowment for the Arts, M.J.
Murdock Charitable Trust and National Dance Project.
During its second year, 2009–10, Trey McIntyre Project toured to more than 25 cities across the US creating and performing the works of Trey McIntyre with debuts in cities such as Austin, Houston, Boston, and Seattle. The company garnered special attention from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and received an Engaging Dance Audiences grant from Dance/USA for its cutting edge engagement methods which they employ in communities across the US. The company’s third year is turning out to be another sustainable success. The year began with Trey McIntyre’s creation of Arrantza celebrating Basque Culture and its premiere at the pentennial Jaialdi Festival in Boise, ID. At Jacob’s Pillow, Trey McIntyre Project’s fourth appearance there in six years, the company garnered a rave review from New York Times critic Alastair Macaulay. In early 2011, McIntyre will engage in another highly-anticipated collaboration with reservation Hall Jazz Band to create a distinctive new work complementing the original 2008 work, Ma Maison. Together, Preservation Hall and TMP will premiere the work February 5, 2011 in New Orleans and continue touring together in select venues around the world.
