Trey McIntyre is one of the most sought-after choreographers working today. Born in Wichita, KS, McIntyre has created a canon of more than 90 works for companies such as American Ballet Theatre, Stuttgart Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, New York City Ballet and Ballet de Santiago (Chile). His company, Trey McIntyre Project, is committed to engaging audiences and communities, breaking boundaries, and developing audiences for the future. TMP believes in the power of art and dance to transform, heal, and enlighten, and the company innovates the ballet genre by infusing its classical inheritance with freshness, vitality, and depth.

In May 2012, Trey McIntyre Project (TMP) toured the parts of southern Asia as part of DanceMotion USAsm, a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State (ECA), produced by Brooklyn Academy Of Music (BAM). As a part of that program, TMP was selected to participate in a pilot DanceMotion USAsm initiative: a U.S.-based residency for an Asian dance company, culminating in performances at BAM’s Next Wave Festival. Trey McIntyre was asked to select an Asian dance company from the many who interacted with TMP during its DanceMotion USAsm tour. After a return visit to South Korea, McIntyre announced the selection of Seoul-based Korea National Contemporary Dance Company (KNCDC).

Established in August 2010, KNCDC is the country’s first national ensemble dedicated to contemporary dance. Artistic Director Sung-yop Hong has identified several goals for the company: to encourage creative work by Korean choreographers; to popularize contemporary dance by creating access for regional and local communities; and to contribute to the global contemporary dance scene through international collaboration and partnership.
