Trey McIntyre Project and the Basque Museum—the best combo since paella and kalimotxos.

Whether it's Boise Contemporary Theater staging a Martin McDonagh play or St. Lawrence Gridiron showing up, out of the blue, at Payette Brewing, there are magical combinations that add up to anticipation of excellence.

One such magical mixture is Trey McIntyre Project and the Basque Museum and Cultural Center. The troupe is collaborating with the Oinkari Basque Dancers Thursday, Feb. 7, at the Basque Museum for a restaging and behind-the-scenes look at Arrantza, a 20-minute piece choreographed by TMP Artistic Director Trey McIntyre that premiered at Jaialdi in July 2010.

The evening begins with a wine social hour starting at 5:30 p.m., followed by the performance of Arrantza at 6:30 p.m. By 7 p.m., the show will be over, but not the evening. A paella dinner will be served and the dancers—TMP and Oinkari alike—will answer questions from the audience. Tickets cost $40 each or four for $140.

Proceeds support the Basque Museum and Cultural Center's Expanding Horizons campaign, which seeks to expand the museum's education program offerings, exhibits and collections while strengthening Boise's Basque community's ties to other communities across Idaho and the West. According to a press release, the program--announced in 2012—has already generated more than $1 million from individuals, foundations and local businesses but is still short of its $1.5 million goal.
