New works are the engine for BodyTraffic dance company

BodyTraffic. You’ve got to love this dance troupe for the name, if nothing else. It suggests invention, attitude, and urban edge. And the 10-member Los Angeles-based company, which makes its Boston debut through World Music/CRASHarts this weekend, has that and more.

Dubbed one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” last year, the repertory company is known for its versatility, bringing vivid theatricality to a range of provocative works commissioned from some of today’s most dynamic choreographers. On Friday and Saturday at the Institute of Contemporary Art, the company will perform three area premieres: Kyle Abraham’s new “Kollide,” “o2Joy” by Richard Siegal, and Barak Marshall’s “And at midnight, the green bride floated through the village square. . .”
