Blind Tiger Society

Blind Tiger boasts a dance argot built from Artistic Director Bianca Cabrera’s insatiable desire for performance that is palpable, visceral, wild and relatable. Cabrera promotes a strong, queer, Latina vision that results in works that spark controversy, create complicated conversations and affirms the often perplexing human experience. Blind Tiger Society is discipline and virtuosity running the contemporary dance gamut from graceful to gruesome, from refined to homespun. Unadulterated physical vocabulary matched with unpredictable partnering creates an atmosphere of adventure and potency. Blind Tiger’s repertoire is emotive and sensual while it’s virtuosic physicality is relevant and timely. 

Bear Down

Bear Down ceremoniously celebrates the growling anthem of the unabashed animal. Spinning a forwardly female fable, Bear Down is a ballad of girlish galvanizing, a humble bow to ancestry and a boldly unapologetic surge of writhing, whooshing and whooping loudly.

Originally commissioned by viv dance collective in 2014.  Available for touring and/or commission.
