Contra-Tiempo is a bold, multilingual Los Angeles-based dance company creating physically intense and politically astute performance work that moves audiences to imagine what is possible. Contra-Tiempo creates a new physical, visual and sonic vocabulary that collages Salsa, Afro-Cuban, hip-hop, and contemporary dance with theater, compelling text, and original music to bring dynamic multi-modal experiences to the concert stage. Contra-Tiempo takes an uncompromisingly radical approach to the ways in which artists function within communities and create their work by intentionally engaging diverse audiences, cultivatating dancer leaders, and centering stories not traditionally heard on the concert stage. Contra-Tiempo is itself a tapestry, whose company members are professional dancers, artists, immigrants, educators, activists, organizers, and movers of all types, living and working across the country.
