The debut work of the MINE Collective, Esercizi per un manifesto poetico coincides  with the founding act of the company.
The co-authorial manifesto finds its dance  writing in a choreographic practice written by ten hands where individual breath and  unison interpenetrate and where the choral and synchronic weaving of space and  bodies becomes the inspiration of a collective language and of an evocative  poetics.

Repetition, stubborn determination, a single stage action, powerful and  structured as an instrument of shared writing, able to generate interactions and  ignite correspondences, giving rise to a single body that reflects on the ability to cross together the change and the passage of time.
Esercizi per un manifesto poetico investigates the coexistence of a rigorous choreographic writing and an open and vibrant emotional temperature that plays in the here and now.


MINE is the result of an artistic encounter between Francesco Saverio Cavaliere, Siro Guglielmi, Fabio Novembrini, Roberta Racis and Silvia Sisto. MINE is an experiment of collective, horizontal creation and choreographic writing by ten hands that aims to carry on a research work focused on the sharing of practices, experimentations and languages.

Esercizi per un manifesto poetico, winner of the 2019 edition of DNA Appunti Coreografici marks the beginning of their artistic collaboration.

In 2020 they debut with the choreographic project Corpi Elettrici, in collaboration with the Gender Bender Festival and the Electronic Music School of the G.B. Martini Conservatory in Bologna. The work was initially conceived as a special project by Gender Bender and the G.B. Martini Conservatory in Bologna, developed during the lockdown to make the 5 dancemakers of the Collective work together with 20 students from the Electronic Music and Applied Music courses. From these meetings, which took the form of videoconference sessions, 20 short video works were produced. From these 20 videos the MINE Collective subsequently developed a creation for the stage.

In 2021 they are choreographers for the project Swans never die(Danzare la memoria 2020-2022) a project of Lavanderia a Vapore – Centro di Residenza per la Danza (Piemonte dal Vivo – Circuito Multidisciplinare dello Spettacolo, Coorpi, Didee Arti e Comunicazioni, Mosaico Danza, Zerogrammi); Operaestate Festival Veneto and Centro per la Scena Contemporanea CSC Bassano del Grappa; Triennale Milano Teatro; Fondazione Teatro Grande di Brescia; Festival Bolzano Danza – Fondazione Haydn; Gender Bender Festival; “Memory in Motion.
