Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker: Dog Without Feathers (Cão Sem Plumas)

Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker Deborah Colker, Artistic Director “A Brazilian revolution”—San Francisco Chronicle Since founding her own company in 1994, Brazilian director/choreographer Deborah Colker has been inspired by her experiences as an athlete to combine physically daring feats with visually striking designs—and redefine the rules for what can and can't be done in the world of dance. Dog without Feathers (Cão Sem Plumas) Last at the Kennedy Center in 2010, Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker returns with an evocative performance inspired by a poem of the same title by Brazilian author João Cabral de Melo Neto. In creating her first work entirely inspired by her Brazilian heritage, Colker vividly brings Cabral’s work to life through her interpretation of the beautiful, yet impoverished Capibaribe River Region in Brazil, and the day-to-day rhythms of the people who rely on it for life.
