Filipinx-American dancer, choreographer, and community organizer Jay Carlon leads this gathering of community and connection, a hybrid of performance, installation and conversation.

Jay and collaborator Micaela Tobin will explore the intersections of their creative research and share details about their collaborative process and upcoming project, WAKE. The vommunity will eat, laugh, and share a little bit of tsismis (Tagalog for gossip). There will be rice.

/TA•LA•GA/ expression: really or indeed; used often when gossiping.

“Through process, discussion, and ritual, talaga reimagines gossip through embodiment and conversation to preserve and reawaken filipinx culture, healing, and joy. Exciting, talaga?!”

TALAGA branches from the artist’s collective mission to unearth and reimagine the Filipinx experience through performance. Their work seeks to strengthen, inspire, and connect the delicate and intimate web of Filipinx experimental creatives and audiences.

The Queering Perspectives Festival interrogates conventional, culturally normative performance, the ’62 Center says. “We want to create a platform for the othered, experimental, and subversive, pushing the boundaries of their form in pursuit of new research and artistic production. QPF has the agenda of sparking new conversations about performance on campus. We want performance to be a springboard for conversation into sexualities, genders, bodies, races, ethnicities, abilities, and desires.”

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
