“She embraced a unique and challenging concept with enthusiasm, insight and boldness. She took the idea I was trying to communicate and found a way to connect deeply to it and make it her own. From the start, her unguarded openness about certain life experiences that she felt could feed into the piece is what helped give it an authentic life. It was a real privilege to work with Allyssa.”
―Anthony Hampton, Director of Experimental Short Film ‘Flow’
“I am so grateful for your leadership, strength, and powerful voice that spoke raw truth. [That performance] was truly life changing. I am so in love with your divinity, you stand with such a powerful goddess essence. Infinite gratitude.”
―Audience Member Review
“She is nothing short of AMAZING.”
―Happy Client Review
Hello! My name is Allyssa Milán.
I am a poet, magic-maker, and performance-based artist. Originally from Connecticut, I spent my early twenties in Boulder, Colorado, and my mid to late twenties in Austin, Texas. As of September 2018, my primary residence is now in Bushwick, Brooklyn. I couldn’t be happier.
But really, home is anywhere I am in the world.
I have delivered talks and performances to audiences of all sizes, and nothing thrills me more than when people leave feeling moved, inspired, and ignited.
I love weaving my energy into a space—whether on the page, the stage, or in front of a camera—to deliver experiences that are enchanting and other-worldly, curious and playful, or emotional and evocative for all those who are present and engaged.
I sing, I write, I dance, I deliver delectable poetry, I act, I model, I serve tea, I create sacred space for healing and authenticity. Want to work with me? Collaborate?
I was inspired to create the life of my dreams at 25, after leaving yet another unsatisfying but “safe” relationship, and stepping into the trajectory of a life-changing decision…
I won’t settle for anything less than my deepest desires.
And… neither should you.
My question is this:
If we aren’t connecting with ourselves and others in a way that is authentic, empowered, and inspired, then what are we doing here?
I can’t imagine living without the vibrancy of city life, and I can’t imagine going a day without being somehow quietly connected to nature. My apartment is a Parisian-styled hub of beauty and pleasantries. I feel equally inspired by Anaïs Nin, Maya Angelou, Beyoncé, Björk, and Oprah. I love meditating by candlelight, drinking tea, being silly with adorable humans, adorning my body with dazzling things, and tearing up the dance floor.
i.e. I don’t like being boxed in.
I am equal parts creatively vibrant, spiritually awake, and unconventionally alive!
Join me on the adventure of a lifetime!
