Tigre Bailando is an Oakland-based, multi-disciplinary artist who has been an intimate part of the Envision family for years. Drawing on his experiences creating the “Mama Jaguar de La Luna” stage in 2015 and the “Templo de la Tierra” in 2016, Tigre returns to bring his unique visions to the 2017 Lapa Stage.
Tigre’s work spans the visual, ritual, and performative arts, drawing on the deep reservoirs of mystery and magic impregnating the world and characters that surround us. At the core, his work is concerned with personal and collective liberation – a kind of freedom achieved through the discovery and empowerment of our deepest selves.
With his work, Tigre seeks to awaken people’s humanity, tapping into something deep by remixing the ancient motifs of myth and ritual with the complex nuances of contemporary existence.
