Trey McIntyre Project will dance a final performance as part of its farewell tour for the Harriman-Jewell Series at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22, in Muriel Kauffman Theatre at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (1601 Broadway Blvd.) in downtown Kansas City, Mo. The program comprises two new works by McIntyre— Mercury Half-Life (2013) with music by Queen and focuses on the life of lead singer Freddie Mercury, and Vinegar Works: Four Dances of Moral Instruction (2014) based on the work of writer and illustrator Edward Gorey with music by Shostakovich, puppetry by Dan Luce and Michael Curry, and recorded narration by film and stage actor Alan Cumming.

The dance company made its Kansas City debut in 2010 on the Harriman-Jewell Series to audience and critical raves. In January 2014, Trey McIntyre announced a transition from a full-time dance company to focus on other enterprises, including film and photography. Trey McIntyre Project ensemble will dance its final performance at Jacobs Pillow in June 2014.

Trey McIntyre Project debuted in the summer of 2005 and was an immediate sensation. “Trey McIntyre is doing something right,” Dance Magazine’s Wendy Perron heralded. “Anchored in strong craft, his dances invite the audience to enjoy his mix of classical ballet, playful movement invention, and down-home humor.”
