Donna Volcan

Donna Volcan, Miss Volcano, imagines herself as a transdisciplinary research laboratory for mixing choreographic creation, pedagogy and artistic research.

Donna Volcan, Miss Volcano, conceives the volcanic as the foundation of creation: earth, fire, air, lava, ashes, and drive.


Founded by Volmir Cordeiro in 2018, the company Donna Volcan marks a radical change in the choreographer's life: his displacement from Brazil to France accompanied by his desire to build a career as an artist-researcher. Initially a transitory movement, the company grew and became a laboratory for the creation and diffusion of choreographic works, workshops and research at local, regional, national and international levels. Creation and research are, thus, the heart of the volcano; and dissemination and transmission, its eruption.

Donna Volcan has been developing its projects with the aim of deeply sharing its structure and resources with a constellation of collaborators. That is, it also exists as a support for artists, researchers and other practitioners related to the activities of the company.

Volmir Cordeiro is an associate artist at the Scène Nationale de Cergy-Pontoise Points Communs, and at the Briqueterie - CDCN du Val-de-Marne in Vitry, from 2020 to 2023.

Donna Volcan is based in Île de France and supported by the Drac as structuring aid since 2018.
