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. The result is a visually striking work saturated with the sounds, landscape, and people of the region, and a timely commentary on the impact of human beings on nature and the resulting climate crisis. Tickets from $15. Further details visit:
