More about Trey McIntyre Project:
July 2005, Trey McIntyre Project burst onto the national dance scene as a summer touring company with its debut at The Vail International Dance Festival. Trey McIntyre Project’s “fresh and forward-thinking choreography” (Washington Post) was an immediate sensation with both critics and audiences alike. The company went on to perform in 2006 and 2007 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. Galvanized by overwhelming critical success during the summer tours, and an insatiable demand for national and international touring, Trey McIntyre Project launched as a full-time, year-round company for Year 1: 2008-09. In August 2009, Trey McIntyre Project began Year 2: 2009-10 with the commissioned premiere of The Sun Road at Wolf Trap, celebrating the vast and changing Glacier National Park as part of their acclaimed Face of America series. In a momentous two-week span in December 2010 Trey McIntyre was named the United States Artists Wynn Fellow, the company was featured on PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and TMP was chosen by the U.S. Department of State and Brooklyn Academy of Music as one of four American dance companies chosen to participate in DanceMotion USA.
