“Fresh and forward-thinking… [McIntyre] makes ballets that surf emotional heights and depths.” —_Washington Post _
Trey McIntyre talks about working with Smuin in a YouTube preview video.
Smuin Ballet begins its season with a world premiere by one of the most sought-after choreographers working today, Trey McIntyre. This fresh new work Oh, Inverted World is set to the music of alt-rockers The Shins, whose songs fueled the Grammy-winning soundtrack of the hit movie Garden State.
McIntyre, founder and artistic director of the nationally celebrated Trey McIntyre Project, burst onto the dance scene in 1989 as the choreographic apprentice to Houston Ballet, a position created especially for him, and has continued to delight and amaze audiences across the country with his brave and resonant works.
The program continues with Bluegrass/Slyde by Michael Smuin, an electric piece in which dancers whirl around spinning poles and joyously revel in the bluegrass rhythms of renowned bassist Edgar Meyer and premier banjo player Bela Fleck. The evening concludes with Smuin’s classic ballet Brahms-Haydn Variations, a lyrical favorite filled with courtly references called “lovely” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
