Artist Bio:

Mickey Negrón is a San Juan-based, interdisciplinary actor/creator, performance artist, dancer, educator, arts event organizer and curator who turns to the real in the theatrical in search of freedom. Born and raised in Aibonito, Puerto Rico, he trained at the University of Puerto Rico and has performed across the Americas, including collaborations with Carola García, Rosa Luisa Márquez, Dean Zayas, Victoria Espinosa, Petra Bravo, Jóvenes del 98, Malayerba, and Yuyachkani. He swallows up the gay scene and brings it to the surface of his body to reinvent it. His nonconformity and country of origin make him gesticulate in unconventional theater spaces. This spittle has been called performance.
