Event Description

CONTRA-TIEMPO, a multilingual Los Angeles-based dance company founded in 2005, is dedicated to transforming the world through dance.  Its unique Urban Latin Dance Theater brings to life voices not traditionally heard on the concert stage, while building community and facilitating dialogue. 

 

CONTRA-TIEMPO’s work is rooted in salsa and Afro-Cuban and draws from hip-hop, urban and contemporary dance-theatre, pushing the boundaries of Latin dance as an expressive cultural form.  The company’s artists are a rich tapestry of professional dancers and performers from varied styles.

 

Their newest work, Full Still Hungry, is an invigorating blend of physically intense and politically astute performance work about food and consumption.  Artistic director Ana María Alvarez states, “Food is not just the material I put in my body to sustain life—but a web of relationships, histories, choices, decisions that all impact the world around us.”  The complexities of this web are brought to life through the company's evocative, electric movement.
