Nicole Corsino & Norbert Corsino are choreographers and researchers. Interested in the kinetics of bodies and landscapes, Nicole & Norbert Corsino explore areas where dance can appear suddenly and be written to show how the movement of bodies modifies them. They change dance performance spaces to show their choreographic fictions in the form of films and installations, particularly with the series of seven fictions on seaports, called Circumnavigation.
With 211 jours après le printemps [211 days after the beginning of spring], n + n Corsino propose a new vision of their work, in which image, sound, and soon text will combine in original new sensorial navigations. In 1996, their work Traversées [Crossings] was commissioned by the French State. Winners of the Villa Médicis hors les murs extramural prize (1994) for research into the Life Forms choreographic composition software, n + n Corsino created the film Totempol in Vancouver, in which they hybridize real-life dancers with digital dancers. This was the prelude to 3D and to the cloned performers of Captives 2nd movement (2000). Their research exploits the possibilities for virtual dance performance through the unique use of the new forms of technology. After Topologies de l’instant [Topologies of the instant] (2001) and the recent Amorces intimes [Intimate Beginnings], Seule avec loup [Alone with Wolf] – a 3D interactive choreographic navigation created in collaboration with IRCAM, Arsnumerica and IRISA – features the WFS (Wave Field Synthesis) sound system. Research and development of this project are supported by RIAM (Audiovisual & Multimedia Research & Innovation Network).

Their works, a series of installations, have been presented in international tours, notably in Shanghai, Canton, Hong Kong and Moscow.
