CONTRA-TIEMPO Hits Shaefer Center April 22nd

Come experience the perfection that is the spring and summer months in Boone and the High Country. The Lovill House Inn Bed and Breakfast sits just down the road past downtown Boone and offers a relaxing and enchanting vacation retreat for all visitors to the Appalachian mountains. King Street is five minutes away, where you can walk the brick sidewalks with an ice cream cone and window-shop, or browse a few books at the local bookstore. And Banner Elk, Valle Crucis, and Blowing Rock are just a short drive away, for some of the area’s best hiking, shopping, and sight-seeing. Call us today or visit our website to make a reservation at the Lovill House Inn!

And If you’re looking to catch a show during your stay, on April 22 starting at 7:00pm at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts on ASU’s campus, CONTRA-TIEMPO will be teaching and entertaining the public with their unique Urban Latin Dance Theater.

CONTRA-TIEMPO is a Los Angeles based dance company founded and directed by Ana Maria Alvarez. Dedicated to transforming the world through dance, their unique urban Latin dance theater work brings to life those voices that are not traditionally heard on the concert stage. CONTRA-TIEMPO builds community, facilitates dialogue and moves youth to imagine what is possible in the world.

CONTRA-TIEMPO fuses Salsa, Afro-Cuban, and contemporary urban and abstract dance theater, to create an invigorating blend of physically intense and politically astute performance work. While their performances are consistently electrifying, what sets this dance company apart from others is their unique relationship to their own community.

CONTRA-TIEMPO is an active and uncompromisingly radical take on ways in which artists function within communities. Each company member lives, expresses, and struggles within the varied and infinitely complex political and personal landscapes that Alvarez seeks to address in her work.

Come experience the vision of this talented group on Friday, April 22nd. Prices range from student tickets at $10 and general public tickets at $20.
