GALA THEME: Celebrating our "westory"
In our 11th year of life as a company, CONTRA-TIEMPO is celebrating not only more than a decade of dance that pulses at the intersection of fierce dance and social change, but also the power and beauty of our "westory". Our "westory" recognizes that without "you", there would be no "us". It recognizes that "I am because you are". It recognizes that we, as a company, couldn't have gotten to where we are today without the support, time, resources, counsel, and genuine love of our entire familia. More importantly, it recognizes that no progress in our country and our world has been the result of individuals acting alone, but rather of a gathering of forces, of community coming together, each individual shining their light and offering their brilliance for the good of collective whole.
We are honored to have BCG Digital Ventures as our partner and host for this event.
