An annual program that supports the development and presentation of new work created by a Los Angeles based artist.  2245 hosts one artist and their collaborators for an in depth creation period followed by a premiere and presentation of the work, produced and promoted by LADP.

We are thrilled to announce our inaugural MAKING:LA resident, Jay Carlon, a contemporary choreographer whose highly physical work is focused in experimental, site-based dance theatre. Based in Los Angeles, this California native is inspired by his background as a competitive wrestler while growing up the youngest of 12 in a Filipino immigrant family.  Carlon’s work has been presented at REDCAT, The Broad Museum, Los Angeles Dance Festival, Electric Lodge, Los Angeles Performance Practice, 92ndY, Beach Dances, Breaking Ground, and The CURRENT SESSIONS. In 2017, Jay was the artist in residence at the Annenberg Community Beach House, where he gathered over 40 dancers to perform a work that began in the Pacific Ocean and migrated across the Santa Monica State Beach. Titled “Out of Bounds,” Jay’s thematic interest in migration, displacement, and trauma was heightened by the shore’s natural and fabricated geopolitical boundary.  Jay is a performer and directing associate with aerial spectacle theatre company Australia’s Sway Pole, where he has performed at the 2014 Olympics, the 2016 World EXPO, and the 2018 Super Bowl. Carlon has also performed with the Metropolitan Opera, Palissimo, Oguri, and No)one. Art House.

Presentation: February 7, 8, 9, 10


2245 Choreographic Residencies

Designed for early to mid-career choreographers, this program supports three projects in initial stages of development. The focus is on providing artists with space and time to dive into a generative process and formulate their impulses. Individuals, companies, and collaboratives are encouraged to submit applications for dance and multidisciplinary projects that combine dance with technology, visual art, installation, music, or other mediums. Projects should not be previously performed or presented and not require additional technical support.

Selected artists receive one week of rehearsal in the 55’ x 54’ main studio at 2245. The facility includes a sound system, sprung marley floor, central AC system, private changing rooms, and parking. The week will culminate with an informal public presentation and conversation with the artist, supported and promoted by LADP.
