The Tribune's dance critic, Kathy Adams, attended Tuesday night's performance by the Trey McIntyre Project at Kingsbury Hall. Here's her review:
The touring show of the Boise-based Trey McIntyre Project was so uniquely off the well-worn path of non-classical dance that many couldn't recognize it as such.
This work is astoundingly beautiful, emotionally engaging, original and highly detailed. It takes the best of what ballet technique can give you and fills it with purpose, while the work plays with dramatic intention. The purpose of art is to move us emotionally, yet so much choreography is either about nothing or so intellectual that it lacks heart.
