Trey McIntyre Project dancers took over Ketchum's Town Plaza on Wednesday, Aug. 26, for a spontaneous public performance. The renowned dance company made its Sun Valley debut last night at the Sun Valley Pavilion. The company will give a final performance tonight at the pavilion at 9:30 p.m. Company dancers will give a free adult master class today at 12 p.m. at the pavilion for anyone interested.

The dance troupe performed what it called "spurban performances" in eight locations around the valley yesterday. Executive Director and dancer John Michael Schert said the idea was to take art out of context.

The Trey McIntyre Project performed the Western debut of "The Sun Road," a new masterpiece commissioned by Wolf Trap Foundation for its "Face of America" series. In addition, Trey McIntyre debuted the dance piece "Shape." He had created the seven-minute-long work while doing a residency at White Oak Plantation in Florida for "The Sun Road."

For tickets, call 622-2135.
