In 2014, after ten years of building his dance company in Boise, Idaho, to great acclaim, Trey McIntyre shut it down. Its sudden and mysterious end is the backdrop of McIntyre’s introspective documentary, which explores themes of creativity, loss, and transformation embodied in the dances choreographed during the company’s life.
Excerpts from some of his best known dances include Ma Maison, inspired by his encounters with the New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band; Mercury Half Life, set to the music of Queen; and the elegiac Bad Winter. McIntyre displays a remarkable ability to create work both idiosyncratic and accessible.
