CONTRA-TIEMPO - NOCHE LATINA BENEFIT FIESTA
CONTRA-TIEMPO is a Los Angeles-based activist dance company founded in 2004 by choreographer Ana Mara Alvarez and a dynamic group performers. The company fuses Salsa, Afro-Cuban, West African, Hip-Hop and abstract dance-theater, to create an invigorating blend of physically intense and politically astute performance. While their performances are consistently electrifying, what sets the company apart most is its unique relationship to its own community. CONTRA-TIEMPO is an active and uncompromisingly radical take on the ways in which artists function within communities. Its members are immigrants, teachers, activists, organizers and talented artists and movers of all types living and working in Los Angeles. Each member lives and struggles within the varied and infinitely complex political and personal landscapes, which Alvarez seeks to address in her work.
The company is dedicated to sharing dance and the transformative power of the arts with young people and communities all over Los Angeles. Please help us do this for the coming year by supporting our yearly BENEFIT FIESTA at the Electric Lodge (LA's only solar powered performance venue and studio) in Venice, CA!
