Founded in 2007, by Lillian Rose Barbeito and Tina Finkelman Berkett, BODYTRAFFIC was quickly deemed “the company of the future” by The Joyce Theater Foundation, and listed as one of Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch in 2013. The company continues to make waves from coast to coast with its universal appeal to new audience members and dance lovers alike. Virtuosic, stylized, confident, with a diverse repertoire of some of the world’s most sought-after choreographers such as McArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham, Sidra Bell, Barak Marshall, Ohad Naharin, Hofesh Shechter and others, BODYTRAFFIC offers something for everyone to enjoy. While in Akron, the company will perform an evening of mixed repertoire from the hottest choreographers today including a brand new piece titled “SNAP” by choreographer Micaela Taylor. This collaboration with Los Angeles-based Taylor, whose TL Collective was proclaimed one of this year’s “discoveries” by The New York Times, returns to her BODYTRAFFIC roots – this time as a breakout choreographer. Taylor’s original piece for the company will embody her signature style: an inventive fusion of contemporary dance and theatrical hip-hop. BODYTRAFFIC seamlessly pays homage to traditional styles and techniques, while forging the way for contemporary dance of today. DANCECleveland last presented BODYTRAFFIC in 2016.
