AGUA FURIOSA, Los Angeles based CONTRA-TIEMPO’s newest evening length dance/theater work, is a burst of energy, passion and physical expression that draws audiences in to confront realities of race in our country. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Oya, the Afro-Cuban deity of wind and storms, artistic director and choreographer Ana Maria Alvarez, harnesses her unique Urban-Latin movement approach to create a visually stunning and thought provoking evening of dance performance. AGUA FURIOSA merges call and response, a live vocalist, water themes, fierce physicality and the performers’ own personal narratives. Audiences will walk away from AGUA FURIOSA impacted, entertained and inspired to join the complex and transforming conversation of race in America.
REASON TO SEE IT:
Ana Maria Alvarez and the artists of CONTRA-TIEMPO are a breath of fresh air on the international dance scene, integrating vibrant expression of Latina/o culture, the complexities of contemporary America and passionate, nuanced dance artistry in a signature language all their own.
