Spring Series 2018
Mar 7-18

Spring Series 2018 will feature world premieres by two of today’s most celebrated choreographers, Trey McIntyre and Darrell Grand Moultrie. McIntyre has created over 100 original dances. His own Trey McIntyre Project (TMP) achieved tremendous critical success during its tenure with features in The New York Times and on PBS NewsHour. Since disbanding TMP, McIntyre has branched off into exciting new artistic ventures, including photography and documentary film, in addition to continuing as a freelance choreographer with select companies. Spring Series marks McIntyre’s second collaboration with BalletX following 2016’s Big Ones, the Amy Winehouse-inspired dance that the company has since toured to Vail International Dance Festival, NY’s Joyce Theater, and DC’s Halcyon Stage. The New York Times called Big Ones “funny, touching, poignant, stirring,” and Critical Dance praised its “superb execution by the ten company dancers” of BalletX. Darrell Grand Moultrie, born and raised in Harlem, is a graduate of Juilliard School. Experienced in theater, ballet, modern, and commercial dance, he starred in the original cast of the hit musical Billy Elliot on Broadway, and has created choreography on companies around the country. Most recently, Grammy Award winning artist Beyonce selected Darrell as one of her choreographers for her Mrs. Carter World Tour. This is the second time Moultrie has worked with BalletX, having previously premiered his piece Differences in Sections on the company in 2012. At its world premiere, The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote of the work’s “sculptural, museum feel,” concluding that if you give Moultrie and BalletX a canvas, “they will fill it with beauty.”
