Nicole et Norbert Corsino
Choreographers and Directors
Danse 34, Productions
34 rue saint-pierre
Marseille France
13006 France

Nicole and Norbert Corsino live and work in Marseilles, France. They're interested in the kinetics of bodies and landcapes and explore places where dance can spring and inscribe itself, in order to show how bodily movements alter these places. As soon as 1989, they changed the locus of representation for dance by showing their choreographical fictions through films and installations, especially with a series of seven harbour fictions called Circumnavigation (1992-1994). With 211jours aprs le printemps, N+N Corsino offer a new vision of their work, where images, sounds and, very soon, texts combine in unprecedented sensorial voyages. In 1996, their creation, Traverses, is commissioned by the State. In 1994, their research into Life Forms, an interactive choreographical composition software, is awarded the prize "Villa Mdicis" for extramural works, and then N+N Corsino break new ground again by directing Totempol in Vancouver, a film in which they mix real dancers with digital ones. That work naturally leads them to 3-D and to the performers of Captives second mouvement, their most recent film, produced at the CICV Pierre Schaeffer with the TV channel Canal + and using motion capture (Pixel Ina Award, 2000, Award for Creation at Dance Screen 2000). In a desire to always expand the stage of motion, where real and fictional bodies interlace, they set up all their creations into installations. Next creation : the installations Topologies de l'instant, from November the 27th 2001 to January the 27th, 2002 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Marseilles. The work will be presented at the Museum of Fine Arts in Shanghai in October-November 2002.
