Trey McIntyre Project: Homecoming 

Trey McIntyre Project is still riding high after not only a couple of positive New York Times reviews, but also a recent performance at the Hollywood Bowl, where they performed Ma Maison as part of the Jazz at the Bowl in front of 7,000 audience members.

"I think a lot of people came to that not knowing about the Trey McIntyre Project. The dancers came out in their skeleton masks and people flipped out," said TMP Artistic Director Trey McIntyre en route from Washington, D.C.

The company will bring all of that electric energy to the Saturday, Oct. 16, show at the Morrison Center, "Hometown Homecoming," which includes an encore of Arrantza, another performance of the popular Wild Sweet Love (which is set to the music of Queen, Lou Reed, The Partridge Family and more) and the Boise premiere of Pork Songs. Pork songs?

"It originally came from a piece I made for Ballet Memphis," McIntyre said. "They have four different local chefs make four courses, and then they commission a work about each food course. The only thing I could glean from the chef was that he was using pork. So I started searching for music that was pork- related."

And from that came Pork Songs, an 11-minute-long piece about a ballerina and a pig going to slaughter, featuring graceful TMP dancer Annali Rose dressed in a pink tutu (a costume not common in TMP performances) and the other members of the company dressed in eerie Edward Gorey-inspired black-and-white.

And this is why we're glad they always come home.
