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.
UPCOMING EVENTS TBA
