The Orpheum Theatre-Memphis says
PART OF THE ORPHEUM FAMILY SERIES

Contra-Tiempo is a bold and multi-lingual Los Angeles based dance company, dedicated to transforming the world through dance. In their newest evening-length work, Augua Furiosa, Contra-Tiempo challenges audiences to confront harsh 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.

This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
