BODYTRAFFIC is helping establish Los Angeles as a major center for contemporary dance. Founded in 2007 by Lillian Barbeito and Tina Finkelman Berkett, BODYTRAFFIC has surged to the forefront of the concert dance world. Named “the company of the future” by The Joyce Theater Foundation, Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch in 2013 and Best of Culture by the Los Angeles Times, the young company is already internationally recognized for their high quality of work.
BODYTRAFFIC has performed for sold-out audiences at prestigious theaters and festivals throughout North America, including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, New York City Center’s Fall for Dance, Chutzpah! Festival in Vancouver, Laguna Dance Festival, The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Annenberg Center in Philadelphia, and World Music/CRASHarts in Boston. Recent performance highlights include: The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Opening Night Gala at Walt Disney Concert Hall conducted by Gustavo Dudamel and a collaboration with choreographer Victor Qujida, sculptor Gustavo Godoy, and composer Jasper Gahunia for a site-specific endeavor for Dance Camera West at the Music Center Plaza. In 2015, BODYTRAFFIC engagements include The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, American Dance Festival in North Carolina as well as Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts.
