The Trey McIntyre Project

The name of 36-year-old choreographer Trey McIntyre is well known in the world of dance. He is one of the hottest contemporary dance makers, with an impressive resume that comprises more than 50 ballets created for such big-name companies as American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, Houston Ballet, and Stuttgart Ballet. McIntyre is a resident choreographer of the Washington Ballet. His latest work for the company, the Beatles part of The Bach/Beatles Project, received its premiere at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater in May to critical acclaim. McIntyre’s original and innovative choreographic palette makes his works “consistently interesting” and memorable.

The Trey McIntyre Project, the dance company founded by the choreographer, is coming to Wolf Trap on August 8. The program features three McIntyre works: an exhilarating dance, Like a Samba, set to Brazilian rhythms by Astrud Gilberto; hailed by critics “a masterpiece,” Just, danced to music by Henry Cowell; and a new work, Go Out, choreographed to bluegrass songs.

More information about the performance can be found on the Wolf Trap Web site.
