Delaney McDonough

Delaney McDonough crafts multidisclinary events with movers ages 4-80, often in collaboration with Cookie Harrist as Hio Ridge Dance. Their work's been produced across New England, New York City, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz. Her newest performance work, Voice & Vessel, in collaboration with Hanna Satterlee and Caitlin Scholl, has been supported by Vermont Performance Lab and Studio 303 in Montreal and will premiere this fall. As a freelance performer, Delaney has performed with Annie Kloppenberg, Hana van der Kolk, Asher Woodworth, Sara Gibbons and others. For the past four years, she's steered two curatiorial undertakings in the great state of Maine, at Denmark Arts Center as Co-Director (2015-2017), and South Portland's Studio 408 as Director of Adult Programming and Director of Moving Target. Delaney is thrilled to teach technique and partnering at Colby College again this year.
