"If you want to be utterly transported, look to choreographer Jay Carlon." — Dance Magazine

In this necessary ritual toward liberation, Filipino American dancer and choreographer Jay Carlon combines performance and queer nightlife for a one-night-only immersive club experience in Los Angeles.

Created in collaboration with a coalition of experimental AAPI creatives, including sound artist Micaela Tobin, rebel Filipiniana fashion house Vinta Gallery, and local nightlife collective QNA, WAKE excavates identity, ancestry, and the complexities of the diaspora. This ritual performance provides communities born in the wake of the U.S. empire an opportunity to grieve, heal, and find solace in the collective.

Presented as a part of Mapping Los Angeles, a new series of relationship-building collaborations and artist-led engagements across the city that expands CAP UCLA’s cultural production in creative entrepreneurial activities.
