-------

Brazilian choreographer Deborah  Colker delivers a powerful work blending elements of contemporary, classical and traditional dance. 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.  

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.  

“I did not intend Cão Sem Plumas to be political, but it ends up being so, because of the content of the poem and the images on film. It is my most explicitly Brazilian work. The show is about inconceivable things, which should never be permitted. It is a challenge to human ignorance. We destroy nature, children, everything that is full of life.” Deborah Colker
