Spellbound Contemporary Ballet | Recollection of a falling

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Teatro Grande Foundation invites Spellbound Contemporary Ballet with a programme conceived by the company’s founding choreographer Mauro Astolfi and Jacopo Godani, an established choreographer now director and choreographer of the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company.

“We live on a planet full of memories. It took us about thirty years to learn how to assemble our own and not become slaves to them. The memory of the first fall, that moment before and especially that moment after that made us realise that it was good to push ourselves towards deeper experiences. This is our starting point, born from the idea and the attempt to talk about the interconnectedness of everything we have been through. Thirty years to understand that we will never be independent islands but part of a whole. We will probably have richer memories to feed on, perhaps more and more disordered, but still something we put in and then take out of ourselves. Recollection of a falling is our accessible and infinitely expandable data system. As human beings we have provided sufficient evidence of our ability to destroy everything: the memory of a fall, small or dangerously large, can be the way to reconnect with the natural world, jump into it and rebuild it every day.”
