Trey McIntyre Project offers studio sessions

Fresh from their performances at the Morrison Center, the Trey McIntyre Project (TMP) is offering up four intimate performances of their work. Taking place on Dec. 7 and 14, the Boise community will have the opportunity to experience the TMP up close and personal. In a small studio theater on Warm Springs Avenue, which seats roughly about 100 guests, a cozy spectacle of the group’s choreography will be on display.

Highlighting their special style of ballet choreography, TMP will set their work to live music. With this type of performance, audiences will see an even rawer side of the dancers as parts of their dances will have to be performed through feeding off the atmosphere and music in the theater.

Jane Naillon, brand director for TMP, spoke about the reasoning why TMP decided to do this type of performance.

“We wanted to give an intimate experience to our audience,” Naillon said. “In setting the choreography to live music, especially in such a small close knit setting, we thought it would be a special way to give back to our fans and show them a performance they haven’t experienced from us before.”

TMP has worked with the Morrison Center to make their shows available to the Boise State community for years now. In accordance with these studio session performances and the history TMP has with Boise State, students and faculty will also have a discount option available to them.

“With a valid Boise State I.D., the regular discount will apply for those interested in getting tickets to any of the shows.”

In experiencing their exclusive creative process on such a personal level, TMP will also be giving a brief glimpse into their new work that they are putting together for the Morrison Center’s spring program. This will include choreography based on the work of Edward Gorey, acclaimed surrealist author and artist who was most famous for his illustrated works, particularly his pen-to-ink works depicting Victorian and Edwardian settings throughout the course of his career.

“The sneak peak is a special treat for those in attendance, it is something that the dancers have been working on for some time now and are ready to present to their fan base here in Boise,” Naillon said.


After the show, dancers will also do a meet and greet with the audience.
