As part of a cultural exchange program funded by government (DanceMotion USA), the Trey McIntyre Project joined up with the Korea National Contemporary Dance Company for a joint program at BAM. One of the works, The Unkindness of Ravens, involved dancers from both companies. Then each company performed work from its own repertoire. You can read my review here.

And here is a short excerpt:

“A choreographer’s voice is like a key – it’s not a guarantee of sublimity, of course, but it opens the door to his inner world. Trey McIntyre is a man who follows his own compass; how else can one explain his decision to base his fledgling company, Trey McIntyre Project, in Boise (Idaho), back in 2008? Boise was no hub of contemporary dance, but he found a receptive community there, and the space to think, far from the crowd, and to make the kind of work he wanted to make, rather than jump from project to project as many young choreographers do.”
