Trey McIntyre Project

comment
When choreographer Trey McIntyre went looking for jazz music to use in his new piece, Ma Maison, he went to the city's best-known source, Preservation Hall. The New Orleans Ballet Association commissioned Ma Maison to explore the intersection of modern ballet and jazz. Though a relatively young group, McIntyre and his company have already set engaging dances to the music of the Beatles, Grand Funk Railroad and Regina Spektor. The performance combines choreography from a young talent and live music. The songs include 'Heebie Jeebies," 'That's a Plenty" and a re-imagining of Ray Davies' 'Complicated Life." After the premiere of the piece in New Orleans, McIntyre plans to incorporate it into the company's show for the rest of its world tour. Tickets $30-$80, $7 discount for students/seniors. — Bryan Davis
