CONTRA-TIEMPO | July 8⁠—12

Pillow Debut

Founded by director Ana María Alvarez in 2005, CONTRA-TIEMPO is a bold, multilingual dance theater company that draws on their Los Angeles lineage with work rooted in Salsa, Afro-Cuban, hip-hop, and contemporary dance.

In the company’s Pillow debut, they perform the evening-length work joyUS justUS, an embodiment of radical joy and justice. “Potent, timely, and positive” (LA Dance Chronicle), the work centers joy as a critical part of building a more just and loving world.

Featuring original music by East Los Angeles Chicano band Las Cafeteras and d. sabela grimes, this “joyous celebration of community” (San Francisco Bay Guardian) engages local communities as participants and collaborators as an exuberant reminder of our capacity to connect, come together, and celebrate.
