"Mont Ventoux will be seen on theatres around the world thanks to the invaluable contribution of the FEDORA - VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Dance Priz.This award allows Mont Ventoux to be produced in the best creative and artistic conditions." Mattia Russo y Antonio De Rosa, Artistic Directors
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.
Surviving in time beyond the societies that produced them and managing to transcend what we call ideas, providing individuals with access to their most intimate and spiritual ways. 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. Kor'sia is based in Madrid and is supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports - Government of Spain, Community of Madrid, Municipality of Madrid.
In 2023 Mont Ventoux will be premiered in Madrid and the international tour will begin in Rome and Cannes. In 2024 we will visit cities such as Valencia, Barcelona, Wiesbaden, Bolzano, Bassano del Grappa, Vaison-la-Romaine among others.
At the same time, KORSIA will continue with the tour of its previous production, IGRA, which will take it to 8 Italian cities until 2024.
Inspired by the work of Francesco Petrarca Ascent to Mont Ventoux, the Kor'sia Collective seeks answers in the humanist past to the conflicts that the 21st century proposes. Alerting us: "We must wake up from lethargy, to get out of the mould”. Climb the mountain, recover our values, do a mass philanthropic exercise, put the human back at the center and the nature that precedes it.
Journey, Ascent, Top, Climbing, Body, Movement, Humanity, Target, Destination, Nature, Work, Reconstruction, Problem solving, Hope, FUTURE.
Everything is overcome by obstinate work.
