Ovations Members – Discount will apply automatically once logged in

The exciting Los-Angeles–based CONTRA-TIEMPO draws on salsa, Afro-Cuban, hip-hop, and contemporary dance combined with text and original music to create an original physical, visual and sonic vocabulary.

A bold, multilingual, activist dance-theater company, CONTRA-TIEMPO inspires and embraces communities where all people are awakened to a sense of themselves as artists and social change agents who move through the world with compassion, confidence and optimism. In their exuberant full-evening work, joyUS justUS, the expressive dancers take on joy as the ultimate expression of resistance. Embodying stories of hope, faith, family, strength, and of course, joy — joyUS justUS — creates a space of both jubilation and healing, allowing the collective “us” to feel more connected, loved, powerful, and alive.

This production may contain atmospheric haze and flashing lights. Ear protection is available upon request.
