Antonio de Rosa en Mattia Russo leiden als regisseurs en choreografen het collectief Kor’sia uit Madrid, samen met onderzoeker en medeoprichter Giuseppe Dagostino en professor Podiumkunsten Agnès López-Río als artistiek adviseurs. Het project ontstond uit de wens om het lichaam in te zetten als middel om verbale communicatie te overstijgen. Kor’sia’s visionaire creaties bestaan uit film, fotografie, literatuur en beeldhouwkunst en nodigen het publiek uit om zich onder te dompelen in alomvattende ervaringen. Over hun voorstelling Siciliana in 2019, schreef The Theatre Times: “De choreografen van Kor’sia zijn meesters in het creëren van een rijk visueel effect vol bewegingscomplexiteit en polyfonie middels [de lichamen van de dansers].”

For the Kor’sia collective, the arts and specifically the arts of movement, as their competence, are the only representations that manage to transmit the human world, everything created by our societies: tradition, society, culture …, in a way that no other cognitive skill achieves.
Therefore, the objective of this  collective is based on the creation of artistic devices whose epicenter is located in the body and that proposes a reflection on the possible gestation of individual and collective spaces, which can provide new access to ways of being and being. in the world through the living arts.
Currently, Antonio de Rosa and Mattia Russo, are the directors and choreographers of the project, where they collaborate together with the Performing Arts researcher and co-founder, Giuseppe Dagostino and the Professor of Performing Arts Agnès López-Río as artistic advisor.
