Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker

Brazilian choreographer Deborah Colker delivers a powerful work blending elements of contemporary, classical and traditional dance to bring to life the poem Cão Sem Plumas, set in the Capibaribe River region of northeastern Brazil.

Based in Rio de Janeiro and winner of numerous awards, Deborah Colker is an extraordinary choreographer. After creating Ovo with Cirque du Soleil, she choreographed the opening ceremony of the 2016 Rio Olympics, featuring 6,000 dancers.

Based on the poem Cão Sem Plumas (“dog without feathers”) by Brazilian writer João Cabral de Melo Neto and enhanced by the striking images of filmmaker Cláudio Assis, this show portrays on stage the course of the Capibaribe River, where the natural habitat and the local population are threatened.

Performed by 14 dancers of astonishing physicality, the choreography interweaves classical, contemporary, popular and ritual dances, set against black and white projections captured during a journey where the dance company immersed itself in the world of the Capibaribe, its mangroves and its inhabitants.  A powerful work. Not to be missed!
