Inside and Outside with Trey McIntyre Project

Six thousand dance fans on October 2 and 3 enjoyed five works performed by Trey McIntyre Project, including two West Coast premieres and a world premiere commissioned by the Center for the occasion. McIntyre’s vision used several features of the Center’s campus, beginning in Segerstrom Hall, transitioning through the lobby and then out to the community plaza. It became dance meets performance art as the dancers continued to perform individually in specially created kiosks topped with video screens while other images were projected onto the side of Segerstrom Hall. The audience mingled and moved about from one location to another to observe each dancer’s individual character. The performances were the climax of an unprecedented week-long residency by TMP, during which time they also held master classes, free public performances, a bus-in for 1,500 students and company classes with local dancers and dance schools.
