About The Performers
Emilio Maldonado is a poet and performer born and raised in Chicago’s concrete jungle, where streets bury streets. As a world traveler with familial roots in Mexico, he writes for the world, the everyman, with poems also layered in the collisions of culture, and the music, and the late night streets of anywhere alone.
Janice V Rodriguez is a Chicago based entrepreneur, comedian, and storyteller. When not building an unnecessary spreadsheet or micromanaging others, she is performing her unique brand of stand up. When she’s on stage, her goal is to bring a fresh perspective to topics related to her Latina culture, Indiana upbringing, and her professional and personal lives.
Esteban Colon is the Poet Laureate Emeritus of Kenosha Wisconsin (2018 – 2019). He has been writing and performing poetry most of his life. Many of those poems appear in Hell Creek, Things I Learned the Hard Way, and Whispered “Soliloquy’s.”
