TMP is coming to the Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center in 2010. I've not heard a whole lot about this new company. What is their core repertory, and those who've seen their dance, what are your thoughts about the dancers, the choreo, the dances' subject matter/story lines, etc.?

Agnes,

The TMP has been around for well over five years now, his work is basically contemporary dance for ballet dancers using the ballet lexicon primarily - you can't pin his work down by "story" ballet or subject matter - like much modern choreography .

McIntyre is a well respected choreographer, choreographing for about 20 years now since he was a ballet dancer. His work has been performed by a wide variety of companies from Houston ballet, to Stuttgart Ballet, New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre.

His dancers are all ballet trained from good companies and schools.

I think any discussion of his style/work/talent is invidious because thoughts and opinions of modern ballet choreography is wildly personal and of course totally biased.

The best thing you can do is go to Youtube and type in Trey McIntyre. He uploads lots of videos of his dances and company work and that's the best way you can get a feel for whether or not you'd like to see his work live.
