DOG WITHOUT FEATHERS
Deborah Colker does in Dog Without Feathers, based on the homonymous poem of João Cabral de Melo Neto (1920-1999), her first show of explicitly Brazilian theme. The international premiere took place on June 3rd of 2017 at the Guararapes Theater in Recife. Deborah Colker Company has been sponsored by Petrobras since 1995.
Published in 1950, the poem follows the course of the Capibaribe River, which cuts through much of the state of Pernambuco. It shows the poverty of the riverside population, the disregard of the elites, the life in the mangrove, of "invincible and anonymous force." The image of the "dog without feathers" suits the river and the people who live in its surroundings.
