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. 

Sunk in sleep

Sunk in Sleep is a dance set in the liminal space between dreaming and waking. Thick with anthropomorphic metaphor and rich with image, Sunk in Sleep vacillates between narrative storylines and kinetic sensationalism.  Evocative sets, detailed costuming and transformative makeup lends an eerie and mystical look into the wandering mind at rest. Unadulterated physical vocabulary matched with unpredictable partnering creates an atmosphere of adventure while leaving the audience with a resonant experience of peril and delight.  Sunk in Sleep is part rock concert, part nightmare part trance. Audience members can expect the dance to wander through meaning, meander through symbol and blur the distinction between truths and fantasy. 

Available for touring and/or commission.
