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.

A series of duet vignettes that can be performed by two or more performers. This piece is a feminist satire seen through a campy lense. Cabaret, drag, karaoke, movie trivia and clown work are the main deliveries while contemporary dance drives home this hilarious female coming of age story.

Originally commissioned by Oberlin College. Available for tour/or commission.
