Since it launched as a full-time, year-round company in 2008,
Trey McIntyre Project has been a sensation among critics and
audiences alike. In its first season, TMP toured to 25 cities
across the US and abroad with commissions from some of America's
most esteemed presenting organizations. That same season, TMP
collaborated with New Orleans-based icons Preservation Hall Jazz
Band to create the acclaimed Ma Maison.
In year two, 2009-10, TMP once again set off on a worldwide tour, performing in 30 cities and premiering The Sun Road as a part of Wolf Trap's acclaimed Face of America series. TMP also received the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's "Engaging Dance Audiences" grant from Dance/USA for its cutting-edge engagement methods. In year three, 2010-11, McIntyre created Arrantza, a work celebrating Basque culture, which premiered at Boise's Jaialdi Festival, and TMP was named Boise's first Economic Development Cultural Ambassador. Year four, 2011-12, was another incredible season for TMP: the company again collaborated with Preservation Hall Jazz Band, creating the highly anticipated The Sweeter End; performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall, Zellerbach Hall, and as part of a 50th anniversary celebration for PHJB, at Carnegie Hall. TMP was featured on the August 2011 cover of Dance magazine and was honored with creative place-making grants from the NEA Our Town program and from ArtPlace, both of which support TMP's Boise Bright Spot Project.
