Contra-Tiempo: Urban Latin Dance Theater

Contra-Tiempo: Urban Latin Dance Theater

World Dance, Experimental
Based in LA, this multilingual dance company creates dance that speaks to the Latinx community everywhere. Contra-Tiempo engages their audience with dynamic and compelling Salsa, Afro-Cuban, hip hop, and contemporary choreography. The LA Dance Review says “the imaginative collaboration between music, song, sound, set and costume, create a culturally inclusive theatrical medium…” Through the power of dance, Contra-Tiempo becomes an agent for social change, encouraging people to navigate the world with compassion and confidence. Their artistic rigor and creativity moves audiences to reimagine the world with a fresh outlook. What sets Contra-Tiempo apart from other dance companies is their unique relationship with their own community. Each member has a unique cultural identity but come together in an electrifying performance to celebrate all LatinX culture, language, and history. Artistic Director, Ana Maria-Alvarez, seeks to express and illustrate the personal and political struggles minorities face through metaphorical choreography. The Washington Post raves about the company, calling it “more than a hip isolating ensemble…Contra-Tiempo pushes boundaries.”
