BOISE -- Saturday night, the Trey McIntyre Project will have their final performance in Boise as a dance company.

We've been a dance company for going almost on 10 years, said Caty Solace, Chief Strategy Office at the Trey McIntyre Project. We've been a full-time touring dance company for the past six years, and that entire time we've here in Boise.

They are doing their final Boise performance as a full-time dance company Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Morrison Center. It's called Mercury Half-Life, and it's set to the music of Queen. It is bittersweet for the company to be doing their last performance, but they are grateful to the folks who have made it possible and supported their work.

We've done something incredible special here with the people of Boise, something that's trying to be replicated all around the world, said Solace. So I think we're going into this last show just feeling incredibly thankful that we had so many thousand of wonderful Boiseans along this journey with us.

After their last performance here, the company will go on a national tour, and Boise will continue to be the home base for future projects.

We're going to be working heavily on production for two full-length feature films which have already started filming, Solace said.

As for their yellow building on Warm Springs Avenue, they will be moving out, however there is no word yet on who will takeover the space.

It was Trey McIntyre's artistic vision that precipitated this change. Solace said his vision shifted to do work in film and photography.

We've started to see commissions come in in those different types of work, and so it felt like it's the time to move on and allow his artistic vision to grow and thrive, she said.

There are still a few tickets available for Saturday's performance.

There are also still tickets available for their fundraiser brunch this weekend, which can be purchased here.
