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. . .”
