Los Angeles-based BODYTRAFFIC—founded in 2007 by acclaimed dancers Lillian Barbeito, who grew up in Santa Fe, and Tina Finkelman—is “one of the most talked-about young dance companies, not just in L.A. but nationwide” (Los Angeles Times). Over the past decade, the eight-member ensemble has developed a reputation for “bringing vivid theatricality to a range of provocative works commissioned from some of today’s most dynamic choreographers” (Boston Globe) thanks to its thrilling performances at high-profile venues and festivals, including the American Dance Festival, Jacob’s Pillow, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall amongst others.
Named one of “25 to Watch” by Dance Magazine, “Best of Culture” by the Los Angeles Times, and “the company of the future” by the Joyce Theater Foundation, BODYTRAFFIC is a must-see ensemble for both new audiences and longtime dance aficionados.
As part of our 2018-19 education programs, Performance Santa Fe is pleased to offer a special matinee performance by BODYTRAFFIC for 5th and 6h graders at the Lensic Performing Arts Center as well as a master class with the ensemble for intermediate and advanced dance students at NDI New Mexico.
