Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker, Brazil

Cão Sem Plumas - Dog Without Feathers

Cão Sem Plumas (Dog Without Feathers)

Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker,
Brazil

The production DOG WITHOUT FEATHERS is based on a work by the Brazilian poet João Cabral de Melo Neto, and “...will translate the great poem into dance, tell of the destruction of nature in the Brazilian rainforest, recall the indigenous population of the region, evoke a kind of end-time, celebrate the primordial life and archaic rites and at the same time make the audience wonder and dream.”

The piece deals with the current topic in dance: The destruction of the Brazilian rainforest.

“Colker’s piece is a vigorous, aesthetically finely dosed protest [against this]. By conjuring once again how man and nature worked together, they denounce the cynicism of environmental destruction."

Ronald Meyer-Arlt, Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung on the European premiere at the Movimentos Festwochen, Wolfsburg 2019

 

The Companhia Deborah Colker will be on tour in Germany – and Europe – in autumn 2023 / spring 2024.
