CONTRA-TIEMPO dances to make a difference, creating a world full of justice and compassion, we are dedicated to inspire, uplift and unite communities on and off the stage CONTRA-TIEMPO is a Los Angeles-based activist dance company founded in 2005 by choreographer Ana MarĂ­a Alvarez. The company fuses Salsa, Afro-Cuban, Hip-Hop, and contemporary 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 has an 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.
