Inspired by Petrarch's Ascent of Mont Ventoux, the KOR'SIA collective seeks answers from the humanist past for the conflicts being proposed to us by a 21st-century paradigm shift: the construction of an individual capable of rebuilding themselves and the planet.

About the Project

Everything is overcome by obstinate work.

Francesco Petrarca (1336)

With Mount Ventoux, the Kor'sia Collective revisits the work that Francesco Petrarca wrote in 1336, Ascent to Mont Ventoux, apparently just a letter recounting the ascent to a mountain in any other April afternoon.

Through an ascent disguised in simplicity, Petrarca offers an alternative to the faith of the world, an ascending journey for humanity to elude and leave behind the dark years of the Middle Age; bringing about a paradigmatic shift to the world to come, humanism.

As the Kor'sia Collective perceives it, this story, Mont Ventoux, still offers us the possibility of learning from the past, which can be transformed into a better experience of the present, and therefore in the construction of a better future for all and all.

Today, we, the people who live together on the planet, seven centuries later and in greater acceleration, typical of the times we live in, we also perceive the urgent need for a change. We are facing the destabilization of the structures that up to now supported us as a community and as humanity, and witnessing the transformation of a too uncertain future.

Petrarca, already warned: "We have to wake up from lethargy, get out of the molds!". Under this mantra, the Kor'sia Collective wants to collaborate in giving voice again to these words that today resonate with importante:

Ascend the mountain.

Recover our values.

Do a mass philanthropic exercise.

Put humanity and the nature that precedes back in the center.

What a better way to do so than through dancing bodies.

Mount Ventoux, is a full-evening performance created by the young Kor'sia Collective with the support of Conde Duque Contemporary Culture Center (Spain), Tanzplattform Rhein Main (Germany), Hessisches Staatsballet (Germany), Roma Europa Festival (Italy), The Watermill Center (USA), Tanz Bozen Bolzano Danza (Italy), Grec Festival- Barcelona Festival (Spain) Tero Saarinen Company (Fi ), Istituto Italiano di Cultura de Madrid (Spain) and Opera Estate Veneto (Italy).

Why should you support us?


Throughout the history of Western thought, humans have constructed resources of paramount importante for our survival and progress: humanism, modernity, democracy, peace, human rights, ecology, arts... Meaningful mechanisms that provide the essential space to develop our lives, to be and to coexist. Kor'sia offers Mount Ventoux as a very much needed gesture, a space to claim attention and generate awareness of the threat that hangs over the fruit of long standing efforts.

That is why Mount Ventoux is emerging as a creative space in which the takingpart and sharing of the community (stage, audience, stakeholders) outlines a world/work in progress. In short, the answer to - what can I do? -, is the belief that "everything is overcome by obstinate work" (Petrarca, 1336).

Who are we?

The KOR'SIA Collective is a young group of artists based in Madrid and formed by Mattia Russo and Antonio de Rosa as directors and choreographers, together with the visual arts researcher and co-founder, Giuseppe Dagostino and Agnès López-Río, Professor of Performing Arts as a playwright and artistic consultant.

They make up the hard core of Kor'sia who, together with other collaborators related to other artistic disciplines, such as music, cinema, fashion, literature, lighting, space design... work on the creation of dance, which always emerge under the mantra of their own philosophy. A search for the defense and transmission to the new generations, that the arts, and specifically the arts of movement, are the only representations that manage to transmit the human world: tradition, society, culture, gender, sustainability, democracy... of a way that no other knowledge achieves. Capable of generating spaces in which individuals can access their most intimate and spiritual ways, helping them find their own meaning in life.
