PULLMAN, Wash. Trey McIntyre has choreographed more than 80 works for ballet companies from Seattle to Stuttgart. But when it came time to form his own company, he surprised everyone by choosing Boise, Idaho, where he felt affordability and quality of life would benefit his dancers.
The Trey McIntyre Project will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at Beasley Coliseum, part of Moscow Festival Dance’s 40th Anniversary Great Performances Series and supported by the Washington State University Visual Performing Literary Arts Community.
Tickets are $28 for adults and $16 for students; the first seven rows are $30. WSU students will be admitted free.
Tickets can be purchased at all TicketsWest outlets or by calling 800-325-7328. They can also be purchased at the door or from Festival Dance by calling 208-883-3267.
The Trey McIntyre Project will go beyond classical ballet as McIntyre creates to a wide range of music and moods. The program will include music by the Shins, an interpretation of Roy Orbison songs and a tribute to New Orleans’ Hurricane Katrina recovery in collaboration with the Preservation Hall Band.
McIntyre began his dance career in 1989 when he was chosen as choreographic associate for the Houston Ballet. Since then, his company has stunned the dance world with its relative newness and speed at which its popularity has risen.
McIntyre’s company has performed in Europe, throughout the U.S., the Dominican Republic and Colombia within the last year. In 2012, the group will tour China, South Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam to serve as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador.
