    Description:

    NCSL_Contra-Tiempo_2019_LGBT.jpg

    CONTRA-TIEMPO is a bold and multilingual Los Angeles-based dance company, dedicated to transforming the world through dance-building community, facilitating dialogue, and moving audiences to imagine what is possible. They create performances that combine Salsa, Afro-Cuban, hip-hop, and contemporary dance with theater, text, and original music.

    In October 2019, NC State LIVE will bring CONTRA-TIEMPO to Raleigh to engage with local communities through their newest work, joyUS justUS - a powerful performance that offers joy as the ultimate form of resistance. With live music by Las Cafeteras, joyUS justUS will be performed in Stewart Theatre on OCT 25 at 8PM.

    And what makes joyUS justUS extra-special is that CONTRA-TIEMPO will invite community members (dancers and non-dancers alike) to be part of joyUS justUS on stage as part of the community altar, a diverse group of people who bring an exciting local voice to the performance.

    FINAL PERFORMANCE:
    joyUS justUS
    Friday, October 25, 2019 at 8pm
