Jeca Rodríguez Colón is a Puerto Rican multi-disciplinary artist philosopher with a dance and choreography background. Rodríguez Colón began her contemporary dance training with choreographers Petra Bravo and Viveca Vázquez at the University of Puerto Rico. In 2002, she moved to New York City where she completed her B.A. at Hunter College with a double major in Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS), and Dance. She was the recipient of Hunter College 2005 Choreography Departmental Award. In 2014 she obtained her MFA in Creative Practices from Transart Institute with Plymouth University. She is currently a PhD candidate at IDSVA (Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts).
Her multi-disciplinary artistic practice ranges from dance and performance arts to video art and object manipulation. From 1999-2001 she was a member of Bravo’s dance group Hincapié. As a member of this troupe, in 2001 Rodríguez Colón had the opportunity to choreograph her first piece Yo con Yo, as part of Primeras Fiestas Coreográficas. Rodríguez Colón's work is connected to diverse aspects of the maternal kinesthetic language and the politics that surround it. She is an alumni of the EmergeNYC 2013 cohort of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, and is a former member of the EmergeLab at Brooklyn Arts Exchange. Her latest work: Sneak into My Maternal Chaos and Desde Adentro, which are part of the Alternative Maternals group exhibit, were presented in 2014 in Berlin, Germany, and in 2015 in London, UK. Rodríguez Colón is also a scholar whose research focuses on maternal politics, aesthetics, and performances in film, television, and the visual arts in the Americas. As such, she has presented at several conferences.
