Blend movement, call and response, and musical improvisation with personal narratives of black and Latino performance artists, and you’ve got the makings of Agua Furiosa, an evening-length dance work created by urban Latin dance theater Contra Tiempo of Los Angeles.

Loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and an Afro-Cuban deity of wind and storms, it’s being performed at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 12, at ASU Gammage, 1200 South Forest Avenue in Tempe. It’s designed to both entertain and inspire audiences to “join the complex and transforming conversation of race in America” — by addressing contradictions of color, poverty, and immigration.

Agua Furiosa is part of the 2016-17 Gammage Beyond series, which expands ASU Gammage programming beyond touring Broadway shows. Tickets are $20. Visit asugammage.com.
