"Full Still Hungry" is the company's newest work, which premiered September 23, 2011 at the Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. CONTRA-TIEMPO brings together Salsa, Afro-Cuban, urban and contemporary dance-theater, to create an invigorating blend of physically instense and politically astute performance work about food and consumption. Artistic director Ana Maria Alvarez states, " Food is not just the material I put in my body to sustain life - but a web of relationships, histories, choices, decisions that all impact the world around us." These complexities are brought to life through the company's evocative and electric movement approach with orginal music composed by resident composer, Cesar Alvarez, and is performed live with a six piece band, of all star musicians including the renowned Afro-Latin percussionist Bobby Matos and the lead singer of Quetzal, Martha Gonzalez. Whether you are devouring the fruit of Carmen's headpiece, indulging in Moros Y Cristianos (the Cuban version of black beans and rice), or tasting each performers' deeply personal connection to food and family, "Full Still Hungry" serves up a blend of both physical intensity with invigorating contemplations
