About this Performance

CONTRA-TIEMPO is a bold, multilingual Los Angeles-based activist dance theater company. Their multi-year project ¡Azúcar! is shaped by a creative team of twenty brilliant artists from across the country and explores how the sugar trade has left a lasting impact on the history of Latin America. Created in collaboration with Afro-Cuban artist and educator Kati Hernandez, ¡Azúcar! is rooted and inspired by the sacred feminine, the vibrations of Celia Cruz, personal narratives about sugar, Afro-Latine ancestral technologies, and healing as a community practice.
