About Trey McIntyre
One of the most sought-after choreographers and artists working today, Trey McIntyre is the man behind the mission—and the movement—that is Trey McIntyre Project. Using dance and a variety of mediums to explore what it means to be human, McIntyre believes that the process of creating art—from the studio to the stage—is a metaphor for the journey of self-discovery. That exploration and discovery has inspired more than 90 works and high praise for its “singular connection between movement and spirit.” (Los Angeles Times)
McIntyre’s inventive combination of the ballet lexicon, his connection to music, and an unflinching examination of the human condition has resulted in exceptional artistry that has garnered him a number of awards and much acclaim. McIntyre was named a United States Artists Wynn Fellow, he received the Gold Medal of Lifetime Achievement from the National Society of Arts and Letters, he received two choreographic fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and he was the recipient of a Choo-San Goh Award for Choreography. The Los Angeles Times called McIntyre a “bright light, a brainy ballet choreographer whose best works fuse visceral physicality with a deep and true humanism...” Another LA Times writer said, “There is indeed such a thing as genuine 21st century ballet, and it belongs more to this guy from Wichita than any of the over-hyped pretenders from England, France or Russia. McIntyre rocks, McIntyre rules. Everyone else can just get in line.” The Boston Globe wrote “In a field overflowing with aspiring dance makers, Trey McIntyre continues to stand apart from—and at times far above—the crowd.” The New York Times noted McIntyre as “one of the most singular choreographic minds working in ballet today."
