“There is indeed such a thing as genuine 21st century ballet… McIntyre rocks, McIntyre rules. Everyone else can just get in line.” –Los Angeles Times
Trey McIntyre is one of the most sought after choreographers working today. Though he has choreographed for many prestigious ballet companies in the world, today he focuses mostly on his own company, creating works designed to reimagine dance, push boundaries, and, most importantly, captivate audiences. In 2012, TMP is touring Asia on a State Department-sponsored diplomacy tour, and will be bringing an Asian company back to the U.S. to perform with them.
The Salt Lake City performance includes the following works:
The Unkindness of Ravens
A recently premiered work featuring guest dancers from the Korean National Contemporary Dance Company
Featuring music by the Cinematic Orchestra and Arthur Tracy
Ladies and Gentle Men
Inspired by Free to Be… You and Me, with music from the original children’s recording
Join Kingsbury Hall for a pre-show “Curtain Talk” Tuesday night before the Trey McIntyre Project performance. The discussion begins at 6:30 PM in the auditorium and is free with your ticket.
Curtain Talk’s featured speaker will be Christina Johnson, the rehearsal director for TMP. She will speak about the company and its place in the current ballet and modern dance landscape. Christina was born in Vienna, Austria. She had a 25-year career as a leading dancer with Dance Theatre of Harlem, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Ballett du Grand Theatre de Geneve and Ballett Basel. Christina was a principal guest artist with the Royal Ballet of London and she performed on Broadway in “The Red Shoes.”
She has been a teacher, coach and ballet master, working with Washington Ballet, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Ballet Arizona, Colorado Ballet, Gotesborg Ballett, Le Ballet du Grand Theatre de Geneve, Ballett Basel, Ballet Hispanico, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte and many more.
