The mission of Trey McIntyre Project is to nurture, support and produce the vision of artist Trey McIntyre and engage individuals and communities in the experience of art.
Trey McIntyre Project last performed in Santa Fe in 2011 as part of The Lensic's 10-year anniversary celebration. The company is back this year with a new body of work featuring Arrantza (celebrating Basque culture), Pass, Away and Queen of the Goths.
In 2010, McIntyre was commissioned to create Arrantza for the Jaialdi International Basque Cultural Festival in Boise, Idaho. McIntyre invited Boise’s Oinkari Basque Dancers into the studio to teach traditional folk dance to the TMP dancers, and he recorded traditional instrumentation and oral histories from local Basques as the soundtrack for Arrantza.
Choreographed to the music of Richard Strauss and sung by Jessye Norman, Pass, Away is McIntyre’s newest work.
Queen of the Goths
Queen of the Goths—originally created at Washington Ballet in 2007 for a special one-time performance—is based on Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, a tale of love, tragedy, and vengeance.
Each year, Trey McIntyre Project tours to more than 30 cities in the U.S. and abroad to perform for thousands of people. TMP is committed to engaging audiences and communities, and believes in the power of art and dance to transform, heal, and enlighten.
In July 2005, Trey McIntyre Project burst onto the national dance scene as a summer touring company. Its debut performance at The Vail International Dance Festival was an immediate sensation with critics and audiences alike. The Washington Post said the choreography was “fresh and forward-thinking.” The company went on to perform at some of the most prestigious summer venues in the country. Fueled by overwhelming critical success, and an insatiable demand for national and international touring, Trey McIntyre Project launched as a full-time, year-round company in 2008 and embarked on a 25-city tour across the U.S. and abroad from its new home in Boise, Idaho.
