Description

The Luckman Fine Arts Complex on the campus of Cal State L.A. will present Trey McIntyre Project on Saturday, Feb. 14, 8:00 p.m.

Three short years ago, Trey McIntyre Project (TMP) burst onto the national dance scene with its innovative and groundbreaking choreography. While using the inherent beauty of ballet vocabulary to create dances that authentically and clearly convey the emotion and grace of life’s journey, the company also fully engages its audiences in the experience of art. Trey McIntyre Project makes its Luckman debut with an evening of dances inspired by music’s ability to start the creative engine of memory, imagination and inspiration. The program will include A Day In The Life, set to the music of The Beatles, Leatherwing Bat, and a preview of the new work commissioned by White Bird.

Since its inaugural season, TMP has gone on to perform at some of the most prestigious summer venues in the country, including Jacob’s Pillow and Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, premiering works created during annual residencies at White Oak Plantation. Guided by Trey McIntyre’s unparalleled ear for musical structures, Trey McIntyre Project’s repertoire spans rock (A Day In The Life, set to music by The Beatles and High Lonesome to music by Beck), classical music (The Blue Boy to Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1), jazz (Sacred Ellington_, a collaboration with opera legend Jessye Norman), and historic bluegrass music selections (_Go Out).

Due to overwhelming critical success during their past three summer tours and an eager demand for national and international touring, Trey McIntyre Project launched as a full-time, year-round company for the 2008-09 season. The company is currently 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 and National Dance Project.

Born in Wichita, KS, McIntyre studied at North Carolina School of the Arts and later with Houston Ballet Academy. In 1989, McIntyre was named Choreographic Apprentice to Houston Ballet; a position created specially for him by Artistic Director Ben Stevenson. Since then, McIntyre has created a canon of more than 75 works for companies such as Stuttgart Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, New York City Ballet and Ballet de Santiago (Chile). Trey has served as Resident Choreographer for Oregon Ballet Theatre, Ballet Memphis, and The Washington Ballet. From 1995 until 2007, he was Choreographic Associate for Houston Ballet. He has received many grants and awards, including two choreographic fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Choo-San Goh Award for Choreography, was named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2001 and one of People Magazine’s “25 Hottest Bachelors” in 2003.

Dancers for Trey McIntyre Project are Lia Cirio, Chanel DaSilva, Dylan G-Bowley, Jason Hartley, Brett Perry, Virginia Pilgrim, Annali Rose, John Michael Schert, and Ashley Werhun.
