|April 3 – 5|
Dubbed the company of the future by the Joyce Theater Foundation, BODYTRAFFIC debuts in Philadelphia amid a flurry of critical acclaim. A Los Angeles-based repertory dance troupe flagrantly defying the notion that Hollywood only spawns commercial dance, BODYTRAFFIC commissions todays most distinctive contemporary choreographers. Its debut features Richard Siegals o2Joy, a playful piece set to a jazz score featuring Ella Fitzgerald; Barak Marshalls and at midnight the green bride floated through the village square..., a dance theatre piece featuring frenetic, high-energy choreography over a darkly humorous narrative; and a new piece by Kyle Abraham, the young choreographer whose career has skyrocketed to much recognition.
