Olana Z. Flynn

Olana Z. Flynn is a first-year M.F.A. student in Experimental Choreography at the University of California, Riverside. She is a recipient of a Dean's Distinguished Fellowship and is a graduate of Hampshire College/Five College Dance Department with a B.A. in Performance and Choreography. Prior to moving to Riverside she lived in Western Massachusetts where, in 2015, she co-founded LOCULUS, a performance collective, along with five other FCDD alumni. LOCULUS performs often in collaboration with DIY musicians and artists in non-traditional performance spaces. In addition to performance LOCULUS publishes a journal that is a site of creative intervention including essays, photographs, interviews, creative writing, and/or ephemera. The first volume of the journal was funded in part by a grant from the Northampton Arts Council. In August 2016 LOCULUS was invited to participate in 2x3: A Generative Art Residency as part of the 6x6 project at the A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton, MA. From 2014-2016 she served as an adjunct faculty member in the Dance Department at Springfield College. She has had the privilege of studying and performing with artists such as Chris Aiken, Angie Hauser, Katie Martin, Paul Matteson, Jennifer Nugent and Constance Valis-Hill. Olana’s work has been performed extensively in Western Massachusetts as well as Vermont, Boston, and New York City.
