In a boxing ring, which constitutes the theatre stage, the performance Te duele? ("Does it hurt?") brings to our attention the many hardships of a young newly wed couple.
A daily routine has already taken hold of their lives and with it domestic violence. Can this vicious circle be broken?
We follow the young couple's daily life as if through a magnifying glass. However, it appears that this magnifying glass is not all it seems. Without warning it turns into a mirror. And all of a sudden we, the spectators, find ourselves in a different role - we are now spectators of ourselves and our own lives.
Te duele? (Does it hurt?)
Festum Theatre (Colombia)
With Yessica Alvarado, John Velasco
Text Cesar Brie (a former Odin Teatret actor)
Directed by Carolina Pizarro, Luis Alonso (Odin Teatret)
