Milton M. Cordero
I grew up in Caguas, Puerto Rico, where I performed for the community theater group and took music classes after school.
My subsequent studies in theater and communications, led me to develop a keen interest in digital technologies and their potential for the live arts.
In 2009 I won the Raúl Juliá Scholarship for my graduate studies in Film Industry at Carlos III University in Madrid, Spain. After that I worked for Canzion Films and Wiesner Distribution, developing marketing campaigns for movies like “Corazón de León” and “Truman”.
In 2012 I joined TanTai Teatro Company to explore and further the use of imagery and projection in the live arts. By the hand of the director Ismanuel Rodríguez, Tantai become an acclaim company in Puerto Rico and was eventually recognized as a cutting-edge company. Some iconic credits include: “Construyendo a Verónica” and “8 women”.
At the same time I was the Technical Director Assistant at the Victoria Espinosa Theatre and work as lighting and video projection designer for companies like: “Gibaro de Puerto Rico”, “Andanza”, “LabA” and “InteMetro”.
In 2018 I open a second office in Atlanta, GA. This year I also designed the production of “El Burlador de Sevilla” in NY, for which I share an ATI Award for Outstanding Set and Projection Design with my friend Israel Franco-Müller.
Favorite’s credits include: "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time" (Teatro Cedin, PR), "Tierra Mía" (Gibaro de Puerto Rico, PR), “Circo Fantasía” (Andanza, PR) and “El Burlador de Sevilla” (Teatro Circulo, NY).
