🌏 DIASPORA DISCO is a contemporary revival of the discotheque – a temporary emancipatory space where diasporic bodies mingle, collide and dance with the rest of the world.

🌏 DIASPORA DISCO focuses on intersections between the Asian diaspora and other diasporic communities while questioning what “Asian-ness” might be.

🌏 DIASPORA DISCO uses the club as a space to embody the cross-border, transnational exchanges that are characteristic of diasporic bodies through the approach of nightlife as a social practice.

🌏 DIASPORA DISCO is a chance for underrepresented Asian bodies to claim space and express ourselves freely whilst generating potent white-supremacy-toppling-dance-energy.
