In the well-known educational reports, Faure (1972) and Delors (1996) the paradigm of
education has gone through different and necessary transformations adapting to the
needs of new societies, and proposing an education in which all
individuals have the right to access knowledge according to their needs and
interests anywhere, anytime, freely, flexibly and
constructive. In accumulation to these premises, in the XXI century, it has also begun to speak
in addition to supporting access to education with a continuist vision, that is, it must continue to
throughout life, Lifelong Learning, situating learning, beyond institutions or
ages that a priori are considered properly educational.
Under this conceptual umbrella, at Kor’sia we consider that all contexts in which
we coexist people -family, community, work, study, leisure- can and should be
educational containers. That is why from our collective, we consider essential to develop
a space in our project that we can consider as a directly focused device
towards learning. Although unlike other possible models, our goal is not
only the transmission of tools typical of the arts of movement, but also from another
type of learning that are indicated as fundamental from the point of view of education and
in our opinion, they must mainstream all artistic and vital practices through the relationship
of concepts such as: democracy, collective responsibility, respect, collaboration, empathy,
emotional education, gender or sustainability, and that must be treated from all perspectives
possible to shape the societies in which we want to live.
Our vision in this regard is given by an understanding of the arts, not just as
elements of personal or collective expression, but as acts (scenic, plastic, musical ...)
that have managed to consolidate themselves as the only representations that manage to transmit the
human world -all that created by our imaginary, society, tradition, science and culture-
in a way that no other cognitive competence achieves, not only
surviving time beyond the societies that produced them but also as
spaces capable of almost magically overlapping the collective and the intimate; offering as
a device for accessing knowledge of possible new ways of being and being in the world as
