Agua Furiosa, CONTRA-TIEMPO’s newest work, 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, the dancers own experiences and fierce physicality with the work of sound designer d. sabela grimes, vocalist Pyeng Threadgill, lighting designer Masha Tsimring and director Michael Garces.

Funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, National Performance Network and the National Endowment for the Arts. Co-presented with Gala Hispanic Theater.
