This bold, multilingual dance company draws on their Los Angeles roots by fusing Salsa, Afro-Cuban, Hip-Hop, urban, and contemporary dance to create an invigorating blend of culturally engaging work. CONTRA-TIEMPO teams up Las Cafeteras, the infectious east LA band that has taken the music scene by storm with their Son Jarocho sound, for joyUS justUS exploring joy as the ultimate expression of resistance.
