Telluride’s Palm Arts​ continues their winter performance season with contemporary Los Angeles-based dance company ​BODYTRAFFIC​ at the ​Michael D. Palm Theatre on​ Sunday, February 10, 6:30 p.m. The troupe has been widely described as “warm, innovative and sexy.”

BODYTRAFFIC​ is a world-class contemporary dance company, known internationally for its Los Angeles-grown, contagious vivacity. Founded in 2007 by Lillian Rose Barbeito and Tina Finkelman Berkett, ​BODYTRAFFIC​ continues to push boundaries and establish Los Angeles as a city known for original dance as well as The Industry, (short for Hollywood). The company is deeply committed to producing acclaimed works by distinctive choreographic voices, while surging to the forefront of the contemporary dance world.

Named “the company of the future” by The Joyce Theater Foundation, and called “one of the most talked-about companies – not just in LA, but nationwide” by the Los Angeles Times, BODYTRAFFIC​ is internationally recognized for its high caliber work and palpable love of movement. ​

BODYTRAFFIC​ is home to an exceptionally versatile family of world-renowned dancers who have trained with the likes of Mikhail Baryshnikov, The Juilliard School, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and other greats. The company is virtuosic, stylized, confident, and presents a diverse repertoire produced by some of the world’s most sought-after dance professionals. Their Telluride performance promises to be surprising, refreshing –  and unforgettable.

“We’re very lucky to have a dance company like ​BODYTRAFFIC​ with such amazing artistic energy perform here in Telluride,” says Palm Arts Programming Director Chris Vann, “They take risks with their work so they should fit nicely into our mountain lifestyle.”

“BODYTRAFFIC begins with regal confidence and anticipation of the unexpected. Along the way, déjà vu signals you’ve seen some version of these works before, but youthful charm and dazzling moves manage the heavy lifting within a nascent design of these choreographed works,” wrote Dance Enthusiast about the group’s performance at New York’s Joyce Theatre.
