Posted in Performances '15, 2015.

Los Angeles-based BODYTRAFFIC, named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2013, is an internationally acclaimed contemporary repertory dance company known for presenting today’s most distinctive choreographic voices. BODYTRAFFIC’s performances are inspiring, accessible, challenging, and full of joy. Barak Marshall’s And at midnight, the green bride floated through the village square… (2012) is a dark comedy based in part on a true story about a family who were neighbors of the choreographer’s mother’s family in Yemen and how jealousy doomed all nine of the family’s children to a life filled with anger and loneliness. Once Again, Before You Go (2015) by Victor Quijada, known for blending ballet with break dancing, is a work full of rippling, gliding, and shifting movements. Richard Siegal’s O2Joy (2012) is an exuberant piece set to American jazz music.
