Andalyn Young is a multidisciplinary artist whose work spans writing, sound, and performance. 

Her writing and sound compositions center reverent attention and the poetry of bewilderment. Recent audio projects include: I Am One Who, a polyvocal poem featured on Montez Press Radio (NYC); Anguish on the Airwaves, a curated program of music and musings on songs born from pain, presented by KHNS FM Radio (Alaska); and The Sisu Diaries, a sonic collage of field recordings and interviews conducted in rural Finland. Her lyric essay Still Life With Strawberries is forthcoming in the Spring 2024 issue of Seneca Review. 

Since 2012, Andalyn has collaborated with other artists to create dance, theater, installation, and hybrid performances. Work has been presented at galleries and museums (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Vox Populi; Harvard University’s Busch-Reisinger Museum), festivals (Philadelphia Fringe Festival; Bechdel Test Fest; Philly Sketch Fest; Hell Yes Fest), educational institutions (Swarthmore College; Colgate University; Drexel University), and premiere hubs for contemporary performance in the United States (Ars Nova; FringeArts), among others. 

Andalyn’s writing and sound work has been supported by two artist residencies at Arteles Creative Center in Finland. As a performance collaborator, she has developed new work with residency support from: FringeArts, PA (with poet Kyle Dacuyan); The Orchard Project, NY (with Pig Iron Theatre Company); Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography, FL (with choreographer Dayna Hanson); Museum of Broken Relationships, Croatia (with Pig Iron Theatre Company); Bethany Arts Community, NY (with Antigravity Performance Project) and Hatch, NH (with The Eva Steinmetz Project). 

She holds a B.A. in English literature from Temple University and a postgraduate certificate in devised performance from the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training. Andalyn has undertaken additional arts training and research at workshops, symposiums, and cultural centers in Argentina, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Austria, France, Germany, England, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
