Trey McIntyre Project 

When: Fri., March 21, 8 p.m. and Sat., March 22, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $30-$68
Don’t blink or you’ll miss your last chance to see the Trey McIntyre Project, which has injected fun and freshness into contemporary dance for the past decade. The Boise-based company’s tenth-anniversary season is to be its last, as artistic director McIntyre is moving on to work in film (including a collaborative documentary with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band), photography, and writing. For someone who doesn’t consider himself a choreographer, he’s leaving a notable body of work in his wake, and you can catch two of his more conceptual pieces this weekend, presented by Cal Performances at Zellerbach Hall (Bancroft Way below Telegraph Ave., Berkeley). Inspired by Edward Gorey, The Vinegar Works: Four Dances of Moral Instruction includes puppets by Michael Curry as well as Shostakovich’s piano quintet in G minor, while Mercury Half-Life pays tribute to Freddie Mercury with exuberant dancing set to sixteen Queen hits. Saturday ticketholders can enjoy a pre-performance talk at 7 p.m. in the hall.
