“Yes, of course it hurts” a new work by Mauro Astolfi

On 4th and 5th January , as part of the dance season of the Teatro Biblioteca Quarticciolo in collaboration with ATCL Lazio, Spellbound Contemporary Ballet presents the premiere of YES, OF COURSE IT HURTS, the latest all-female choreography by Mauro Astolfi. 


YES, OF COURSE IT HURTS is the result of a strong impression made by reading the wonderful poem of the same name by Karin Boye: a profound and acute reflection on the necessity of pain in our lives as a moment of transmutation and understanding of its inevitability. A pain that accompanied us, but that we must not fear, because it is in that moment, when we free ourselves from the fear of pain, that we create our world
