"More than a hip isolating dance ensemble...CONTRA-TEIMPO pushes boundaries."

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 dancetheater 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.
