DanceMotion USA’s U.S.-Based Residency Culminating Event
Trey McIntyre Project and Korea National Contemporary Dance Company

“I never really understand the work until it’s done. I try to go directly from my own subconscious… [I try to] get my own ego out of the way [and] my own need to say ‘I want to make a great piece, I want to impress somebody.’”
—Trey McIntyre

My Show:
A collaboration between Trey McIntyre Project and Korea’s first state-funded contemporary dance company, Korea National Contemporary Dance Company, celebrating TMP’s homecoming from its DanceMotion  USA tour through the Philippines, China, and South Korea.

My art is most inspired by:
People who endeavor to find the truth and who do so, bravely and at personal risk. Comedians like Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K. make my brain pop.

Most American thing about my dance:
I come from the Great Plains and I think my work is deeply informed by that sense of space and earth and distance. The people I grew up around were earnest and plainspoken. I seek that same kind of clarity and meaning in the dances I make.

Ballet in 2012 means:
Ballet for me is just the language I use. It's a process of making sense of a flawed instrument.

Favorite non-dance motion in the USA:
Playing with my mustache.

DanceMotion  USA is a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, produced by BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) to showcase contemporary American dance abroad. Since 2010, seven American dance companies have toured to 26 countries to participate in workshops, outreach, education and exchange through dance. This year, a new component of the program brings a foreign company back for a residency and performances with one of the American touring companies.
