Bram Goldsmith Theater
BODYTRAFFIC’s troupe of “unfailingly deft and endearing dancers” (Los Angeles Times) takes the stage with three compelling works that embody the company’s energy, sophistication, and sheer joy in performing dance. As its resident dance company, the internationally acclaimed BODYTRAFFIC has been chosen to launch The Wallis dance series and is proud to be the first artists to appear indoors at the theater since the Covid-19 forced shutdown. The mesmerizing program includes Kyle Abraham’s Kollide, a 2013 BODYTRAFFIC commission made for five dancers that combines elements of ballet and hip hop to explore the emotional complexity of connection. Also on tap is the world premiere of Recurrence, a duet created by Ethan Colangelo, a company member who, in his short choreographic career, has already garnered much attention, including recent multiple awards at the prestigious Copenhagen International Choreography Competition. Rounding out the program is Micaela Taylor’s engaging SNAP, a piece capturing her take on the Los Angeles experience that urges us to “snap out of” the social pressure to conform.
