Hi Tiger

Hi Tiger is a group of performing and visual artists, music producers and instrumentalists. Performances are directed by Derek Jackson (lyrics / vocals) and include fierceness by Amandaconda & Nicole Antonette, with lighting design and sculpture by PSBL. Hi Tiger performs live vocals and choreography with musical accompaniment produced by a growing roster of beat makers and musicians including Taylor Vesey aka SWIM, Chris DiRocco, James Paul Cooper, Jacob Pitcher, Remy Brecht, 32 French, Sam Lee and Jack Reynolds.

Hi Tiger's current work is inspired by science fiction, 90's advertising, queer culture, brown skin, blonde tips and current production trends in popular music. We incorporate contemporary performance techniques and stage design to create a context for sharing our synaesthetic responses to music.

A 2017 recipient of the Kindling Fund through SPACE Gallery, Hi Tiger has been featured in performances at Institute of Contemporary Art (Portland, Maine) for the exhibition Tinderbox, Brooklyn Academy of Music for EVERYBOOTY / NYC, LePetit Versailles (for the exhibition NOT OVER: 25 years of Visual AIDS), Spectrum (New York), and Portland Pride (Maine).

I Have Worked With

  • December 2016

     Studio 408 Dance presents Performance Night // Saturday, December 3. 2016 // 

    Borrowing from the AUNTS and SALTA performance series in Brooklyn and Oakland, the audience will move about the space and enjoy overlapping performances by local artists and conversation. We see this format as a way to complicate the hierarchy between performer and audience as well as an experiment in staying open to the unexpected! The night will end with a dance party sonically facilitated by Tanya Iron Lima.

    Contributing Artists:  HI TIGER, RACHEL BOGGIA, KERRY CONSTANTINO, MARTHA SCHNEE, NICOLE GAYLOR, KAFARI, HANNAH DEANGELIS, HIO RIDGE DANCE, JANOAH any good jokes? BAILIN, TANYA IRON LIMA.
