Harbourfront Centre presents Deborah Colker Dance Company’s Dog Without Feathers

Harbourfront Centre, in partnership with Digidance, presents the Canadian digital broadcast of celebrated Brazilian choreographer Deborah Colker’s Dog Without Feathers, streaming Sept 29 – Oct. 11, 2021. Inspired by a poem by João Cabral of the same name (Cão Sem Plumas), Colker crafts a mesmerizing vision of mud-and-dust-covered dancers shown as emergent from the animal and elemental worlds, yet at the same time destructive of them. In creating the work, Colker’s 14-member company explored the beauty as well as the cultural and environmental impact of Northeast Brazil’s Capibaribe River.
