Contra-Tiempo's featured piece "Full Still Hungry" was actually a three-part evening-length work that included several dances in each part. Though it seems obvious, it surprised me that the three parts were entitled "Full," "Still," and "Hungry." The six-piece orchestra wore white, the women dancers swirled in vibrant skirts and the men hip-hopped and break danced in earth tones. César Alvarez, Ana Maria's brother and co-director, composed the original music and wrote the text for the narration. It was a treat for the eyes and ears.
