Delaney McDonough | Arletta Anderson + Adam Smith

Arletta Anderson & Adam Smith present early stage developments of Canon-in-Progress, inspired by religious zealotry and equestrianism.


Arletta Anderson & Adam Smith are a dance artist and a theater artist, respectively. Together, they make live performance that sits somewhere between, and outside of, dance and experimental theater. Their work deals with the quotidian and the extraordinary, the body and effort, and the blurred lines between what is real and what is absurd.


Delaney McDonough presents  from memory.  With humor, humility, and dive-bar sensibility, from memory unveils tightly held family secrets in an attempt to marinate together in fleeting truths and constructed identities. from memory is scaffolded by frankly told stories of McDonough's larger-than-life Uncle, his time in Vietnam, and what came after.


Delaney McDonough is a maker & producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Their collaborations have been presented by Triskelion & NOGO Arts (NY), Studio 303 (Montreal), Vermont Performance Lab (VT), and School of Contemporary Dance & Thought (MA), among others. Delaney’s performed with Heidi Henderson (CT), Annie Kloppenberg (ME), Hana van der Kolk (NY), Asher Woodworth (ME) and served as a Teaching Artist at Colby College 2016-2017.
