Inspired by Petrarch’s Ascent of Mont Ventoux, KOR’SIA 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. KOR’SIA wants to giving voice again to these words: 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.


The KOR’SIA Collective works in the creation of dance under the mantra 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… in a way that no other knowledge can. They are capable of generating spaces in which individuals can access their most intimate and spiritual paths, helping them to find their own meaning in life.
