LOCULUS is a dance collective founded in 2015 in Western Massachusetts by Five College Dance alumni. Currently LOCULUS is the creative platform of Olana Flynn and Madison Palffy. Olana holds an MFA in Experimental Choreography from the University of California Riverside; her current research looks at improvisational movement and analog technologies for looping and layering such as 35mm photography and electronic music in relation to liminality and memory. Madison is currently pursuing an MFA in Dance at CU Boulder where she is researching the intersection of queer futurity, black radical thought, and science fiction as a way to think about new models of collectivity and survival. LOCULUS has performed throughout the northeast often in collaboration with DIY musicians and artists in non-traditional dance performance spaces. In addition to creating, curating, and producing performance events LOCULUS publishes The Loculus Journal. The Loculus Journal is a platform for engaging critically around questions of the body in dance and performance across discipline and medium. LOCULUS is committed to inclusive, anti-oppressive curation in performance and publishing.

For the past five years we have funded our work with small grants, money from performance gigs, and from our personal bank accounts.
We have set up a Patreon account which we hope will offer flexible and easy options for you to support us. You can support us with as little as $3/month in exchange for early access to merch, producer credit in our annual Loculus Journal, and an exclusive monthly post with something we're currently reading, looking at, watching, or listening to. The options only get better from there. You can also support us by making a one-time donation. We are working towards fiscal sponsorship so that your future donations may be tax-deductible but in the meantime you can donate to us directly through PayPal.
