Los Angeles-based activist dance theater company CONTRA-TIEMPO is dedicated to transforming the world through dance—building community, facilitating dialogue, and moving audiences to imagine what is possible.

In this special program for youth audiences, the company will present excerpts from JoyUS JustUS, which takes on joy as the ultimate expression of resistance, and selections from a newly developed work, ¡Azúcar!. Personal narratives of family, food, labor and community, are interwoven with Celia Cruz’s vocal vibes to explore ancestral wisdom about a plant once used in healing, now extracted, refined and weaponized.
