Booth Playhouse will be transformed into an immersive 360-degree seating arena as Los Angeles-based dance troupe Contra-Tiempo performs their piece “joyUS justUS.” Fusing Salsa, Afro-Cuban, Hip-Hop and contemporary dance with theater, compelling text and original music, the company brings physically intense and politically astute experiences to the concert stage. The piece, created specifically for the Charlotte performances, will feature UNC Charlotte dance students as part of a community cast.
Following each performance, the audience will be invited to participate in a post-show sabor– a community salsa dance party. Charlotte DJ Minuche will be spinning music rooted in the Latino and African diasporic soundscape to keep the energy going.
