    Special Guests:

    Migguel Anggelo (He/Him/His) is Brooklyn-based, and Venezuelan-born. Anggelo is an interdisciplinary performing artist. He invokes muses from art history, harnessing this lineage in effortlessly forward-thinking ways. He mines from his journeys as a Latino immigrant and a queer man: a fountain of source material to explore shared human experiences. He expresses himself through costume, musical composition, and solo theater work, evoking the “showmanship of Desi Arnaz and the performance art of Klaus Nomi” (Theater Scene). His lyrical movement recalls Marcel Marceau, and his comic timing alludes to Charlie Chaplin. Marked by pop ambition, he nods towards the likes of David Bowie and Freddy Mercury. With unabashed theatricality, Migguel Anggelo straddles decades, genres, and cultures. www.migguelanggelo.com/bio/
