Veteran cultural group Tigertail Productions, headed up by legendary director Mary Luft, is presenting another season jam-packed with musical and theatrical performances as well as spoken word events.

They’ve been presenting passionate programs in performing and visual arts since 1979 and each year is better than the next. They’re known for pushing the envelope and bringing recognition to lesser-known artists who they feel deserve their time on stage.

Gracing this season’s calendar are Dutch jazz artists the Benjamin Herman Quartet, a variety of spoken word or “WordSpeak” events and workshops, blues legends Henry Gray & the Cats and jazz guitarist Bill Frisell. The Jess Curtis Gravity Dance troupe, featuring dancers from France, Germany, Italy, England and the United States, is an interdisciplinary mixed ability performance. And Japanese couple Eiko & Koma present their provocative performance piece “Raven.”

Tigertail’s performances are held on Miami Beach, in Coral Gables and throughout Miami. Visit their web site for exact locations.
