Dayquan Moeller is a Long Beach based composer, playwright, poet, field recordist, and performance artist. His performances range from roaming his neighborhood with a cardboard box over his head, to trying to convince open mic attendees to purchase drinks from an “Invisible Lemonade Stand.” His collaborative works include composing music for three short plays, two short films, and publications in Molecule – a tiny lit mag and The Greenleaf Review. He is also co-editor in chief for the art and literature magazine, 562 Medium.

Dayquan often jokes that he is an "artist in anthropologist drag," because his creative process is so research-based.

“Now, "In Our Glory," will serve as my senior project at Whittier College. It is the culmination of four years of my studies, and eight-years of experience with my research-based craft.” Dayquan made the decision to focus on the experiences of immigrant and international students with this piece because he wants to celebrate the melting-pot that is Whittier. In an era where xenophobia and people’s fear of "the Other" is rising, Dayquan believes that this is more important than ever.
