Internationally acclaimed for its “wonderfully precise dancers” (The New York Times), BODYTRAFFIC returns to the American Dance Festival with a program highlighting the artistry of three of today’s most engaging contemporary dance choreographers. On tap is the world premiere of a duet by Brian Brooks, created during his recent ADF residency, that is certain to reveal his characteristic “kinetic thrill and visual power” (The Washington Post). Also featured is Matthew Neenan’s A Million Voices, a piece set to the nostalgic songs of the great Peggy Lee that explores eternal notions about life, love, and war. And 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.
