Companhia De Danca Deborah Colker
The embryo of what would be Companhia de Dan?a Deborah Colker was born in 1993, in the dance halls of Casa do Minho in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where Deborah Colker used to teach. A year later the company made its debut at the Globo em Movimento festival at Rio's Municipal Theatre, in a double bill with Momix Dance Group. With the freedom to develop in its own Rio-based centre, the company has been working to create new dance languages and original scenic elements, combining contemporary and traditional techniques and drawing on everyday themes that audiences can relate to.

Colker’s work is renowned across the world for the incredible skill and concentration it demands of her Brazilian dancers. Not only do they move with feather-light grace and precision, but also with a touch of daring acrobatics and athleticism which leaves audiences astounded and exhilarated. It’s this ability to combine the passionate with the sublime which makes a performance by Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker a truly unforgettable experience. Donald Gordon Theatre
