Jacob’s Pillow is excited to announce that Los Angeles-based activist dance theater company CONTRA-TIEMPO will host a community dance party and workshop (“Sabor Session”) on the evening of Tuesday, February 20, followed by a performance of ¡azúcar! on Friday, February 23. These events will be held at the Common Room at Zion Lutheran Church on First Street in Pittsfield.

This programming is presented by Jacob’s Pillow—America’s preeminent international dance center, based in Becket—in partnership with NAACP Berkshire County Branch. This event is part of the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival, a city-wide event featuring dozens of events, in partnership with Mill Town Foundation. Go to for more information.

CONTRA-TIEMPO is a bold, multilingual Los Angeles-based company that creates communities where all people are awakened to a sense of themselves as artists and social change agents who move through the world with compassion, confidence, and joy. The company dances and educates using a physical, visual, and sonic vocabulary that combines Salsa, Afro-Cuban, hip hop, and contemporary dance with theater, compelling text, and original music.
