About The ArtistsFor 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, etc, 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.
Currently, Antonio de Rosa and Mattia Russo are the directors and choreographers of the project, together with the Performing Arts researcher and co-founder, Giuseppe Dagostino, and the Professor of Performing Arts Agnès López-Río as artistic advisor, are the main architects of the KOR’SIA collective.
KOR’SIA is a recipient of the 2022 Baroness Nina von Maltzahn Fellowship for the Performing Arts at The Watermill Center. Matthew Randle-Bent is a theatre scholar and artist from the UK, based in Chicago, IL. His work focuses on the cultivation of two particular subjectivities: the “critical attitude” described by Brecht, and the new subjectivities fostered by twentieth century “landscape” performance. Randle-Bent is currently working on two projects.
