Tigertail Overview

Tigertail Productions, at the time it closed at the end of 2017, was based in Miami and was Florida's pioneer of innovative art, the oldest mid-size presenting and producing organization in South Florida. Founded in 1979, Tigertail Productions was a nationally respected organization with a sustained passionate record of creative achievement that commissioned, presented and produced more than 670 artists in the performing and visual arts. For 37 years, Tigertail's performance programs combined an energetic mix of national and international artists of all disciplines with Miami's burgeoning regional artists. Tigertail has a reputation for discovery and for bringing deserved recognition to many artists. Tigertail brought to Miami an amazing array of artists of all abilities who challenged and stimulated audiences and worked in our community. Tigertail projects reflected the socio-economic range, diversity and profile of Miami-Dade.

We feel that our longevity had to do with careful planning and our project partnerships. Tigertail had a solid reputation for producing high quality events that came within budget. Tigertail was a member of: Florida Cultural Action Alliance, Greater Miami Convention and Visitor Bureau and Alternate ROOTS. Tigertail was a Hub Site Member of the National Dance Project (NDP) and a partner of the National Performance Network (NPN). Founder and Executive Director Mary Luft is a member of the National Council of the Atlantic Center for the Arts.
