Our commitment is the functional tool that allows circulation / mobility / hospitality and guarantees visibility, diffusion and free circulation of contemporary art in Sardinia which is part of a magnificent territory, a place of "resistance "and" cultural activism "in the Mediterranean basin.

The aim is to support research through the identification of choreographic projects, to promote the meeting and comparison between artists who have different experience or backgrounds, creating an opportunity with the territory through training projects, seminars, production and co-production, artistic residences - interviews - shared dialogues, which are the intervention tools that truly guarantee direct and authentic contact with the whole community.

With authentic love for culture, stable destination of resources in multi-year projects, choices of artistic lines coherent with the identity of Tersicorea, the primordial goal as a social and environmental commitment is to strengthen the relationship with the community, to guarantee the mobility of works and artists in paths whose effects are reflected over time, and again, to ensure the visibility of works in transformation to be represented during the creation phases up to the maximum expression of their beauty and particularity.

The anthropological approach allows artists through a shared programme to make visible their artistic path which thus "lives" in a context of comparison and intergenerational dialogue. The Festival throughout the years has guaranteed the production and mobility of a consistent number of projects in the field of choreography, (over 150 works were identified hailing from: Italy, Portugal, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Ivory Coast, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, Egypt, Brazil, Tunisia, North and West Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Armenian), rewarding the originality, the creativity, the drama and communication capacity across “Non Verbal” language.

Training activities “artistic residences”

https://en.tersicorea.it/corto...Workshops, intended as experimentation with the languages ​​of contemporary / performative art, through the permanent action of artistic residences in the form of "building sites" for artistic training. The prerequisite is concentrated in the construction of a real space for sharing and comparing good practices, increasement of skills, protection of creative paths and, last but not least, constructive dialogue between artists and the public, for the benefit of a systematic process of dissemination and education in the in the context of contemporary performance languages, a bridge with the territory that can suggest a dynamic idea of ​​cultural and artistic development.
