Cão Sem Plumas (Dog Without Feathers) — Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker (Brazil)
Brazilian choreographer Deborah Colker delivers a powerful work that brings to life the poem “O Cão Sem Plumas,” written by João Cabral de Melo Neto about the Capibaribe River Region of Northeastern Brazil.
Performed by 14 dancers of astonishing physicality, the choreography interweaves classical, contemporary, popular and ritual dances. The performance is set against black and white projections, the striking images of filmmaker Cláudio Assis captured on-location 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, Colker is an extraordinary choreographer. After creating Ovo with Cirque du Soleil, she choreographed the opening ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympics, featuring 6,000 dancers.
