Jacob’s Pillow: CONTRA-TIEMPO Performance of ¡azúcar!
During their Pillow Lab, CONTRA-TIEMPO will continue to develop their newest work, ¡azúcar!. Led by the vision of Alvarez, founding Artistic Director, alongside twenty artists and collaborators from across the country, ¡azúcar! brings to life the vibrations of Cuban musician Celia Cruz, and embodies personal narratives about sugar, Afro-Latin ancestral technologies, dance, music, and healing as a community practice. The development of ¡azúcar! is driven by questions of unearthing the history embedded in the artists’ bodies to courageously name, confront, and intentionally obliterate the often unspoken undercurrent of anti-Blackness in Latinidad. In CONTRA-TIEMPO’s residency, the artists will be deepening the narrative physicality and expanding the piece of ¡azúcar!.
