BODYTRAFFIC have achieved the rare feat of being chameleon-like and utterly, completely, themselves. Under the auspices of Lillian Rose Barbeito and Tina Finkelman Berkett, the company has conquered the contemporary dance world, with stunning performers, technical mastery, and a commitment to the most challenging repertoire.
This mixed program includes some of their most celebrated performances — from the explosive aggression of Hofesh Shecter’s Dust, to the whimsy and humour of Matthew Neenan’s A Million Voices, the tangled tragedy of love and madness in Fernando Hernando Magadan’s (d)elusive minds, and SNAP, Micaela Taylor’s layered take on social pressure and urban diversity.
BODYTRAFFIC’s ability to embody a multiplicity of choreographic languages in their own style defies easy categorization. Eclectic, virtuosic and unafraid to take on any dance language from hip hop to ballet, they are their own masterwork.
