“A Brazilian revolution” (San Francisco Chronicle), Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker makes a long-awaited return with Cão Sem Plumas (Dog Without Feathers), an evocative performance inspired by João Cabral de Melo Neto’s poem of the same name. Winner of the international Prix Benois de la Danse, the work explores the Capibaribe River region in Northeast Brazil and the dry land and riverbed dwellers that water sustains. In a powerful blend of contemporary dance, poetry and film, Colker meditates on inequity and resilience as she attempts to dissolve the moving body, covered in dust, into liquid.
