IF MODERN, VIGOROUS BALLET IS YOUR THING....

Deborah Colker (born 1960 Rio de Janeiro) is a worldwide famous Brazilian writer dancer and choreographer. She received the Lawrence Oliver Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance in 2001 for her choreography work on the show 'Mix'. In 2008 Deborah wrote, directed and choreographed Cirque du Soleil’s newest show, OVO, which premiered in 2009 in Quebec. She has the distinction of being the first woman to direct for Cirque du Soleil.
Deborah established her own company in 1994 following an invitation to participate in the Carlton Dance Festival and has since created ten full-length dance pieces: Vulcão, Velox, Mix, Rota, Casa, 4 por 4, Knot, Dynamo, Cruel and Tatyana. Her work has been recognized in various Brazilian awards ceremonies over the years.
 The embryo of what would be Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker was born in 1993, in the dance halls of Casa do Minho in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where Deborah 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.
As a result of its hard work and obvious talent, the company quickly earned an official sponsorship from the Brazilian State Oil Company, Petrobras, which has allowed it to invest in soaring flights of creation and establish a strong reputation in the world of dance.
