Ana Maria Alvarez’s newest participatory and provocative “Urban-Latin” dance theater work takes on joy as a revolutionary practice. With sound by d. Sabela grimes and songs by Las Cafeteras, joyUS justUS reclaims the deficit-based narrative of people of color in this country and flips it on its head. By embodying stories of joy, the company uses technically rigorous social dance forms to undermine the too-common narratives of people of color as underprivileged, voiceless, and victimized. Inviting audiences to actively participate in what they’re experiencing on- and off-stage, CONTRA-TIEMPO creates spaces of joy and healing, allowing the collective “us” to feel more connected, loved, powerful, and alive. ?
