Bursting onto the national dance scene as a summer touring company in 2005, the Trey McIntyre Project’s Pillow debut that year led to a return engagement the very next season. In 2008, the company created its home base in Boise, Idaho, and made its official debut as a full-time year-round performing ensemble at the Pillow, presenting two world premieres including the work seen here. McIntyre was born in Kansas and trained at the North Carolina School of the Arts before joining the Houston Ballet. In 1989, he became the company’s first Choreographic Apprentice, and that early start has led to a canon of more than eighty works for companies such as the Stuttgart Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and the New York City Ballet. Other Pillow presentations included Wild Sweet Love in 2010, the premiere of LADIES AND GENTLE MEN in 2012, and the company’s farewell engagement in 2014. McIntyre’s most recent Pillow presentation was the world premiere of Less Amor at the 2019 Season Opening Gala.
