CRAFT association – Spazio Kor

CRAFT association – Spazio Kor


Spazio Kor is one of the most important projects of the CRAFT Association. This project began in 2016 when the association transformed and restored the closed-down church of San Giuseppe di Asti church to turn it into a multidisciplinary space, called Spazio Kor. The space holds theatre shows figurative arts, events, meetings and all kinds of cultural new experiences.  Over the years, Spazio Kor has become a model of good practices for the re-use of Religious Heritage space. Spazio Kor is the perfect place to show or present a new cultural experience that can become a reference point for researchers and innovators. Their main goal is to engage a new kind of public into the contemporary vision of the theatre, where the religious architecture of the building creates dialogues with the identity of the community and contemporary creativity.  Among the main activities and events that the Spazio hosts are theatres and concerts, but also they develop several courses related to the theatre industry.




In the space, there is an amazing theatre set up, where they believe in a new and contemporary idea of showing the magic and values of the theatre work. During 2017 they organised two artist residences called “Call Signals”. One of them was by Jacopo Valsania and Chiara Poletti, which consisted of four large revolving lenses placed in the theatre garden. The second one was, “Barricata” a project by Jessica Koba and Andrea Fasano, that it was based on the idea of creating a functionally unique setting for the foyer, mainly using recycled materials.


Another innovative part of the project, that is located within the space is the Museo “La Macchina delle Illusioni”, consisting of a series of interactive installations inviting the visitor to learn real operations, techniques, and technologies, used in the making of a theatrical set up.


Spazio Kor offers several courses on the theatre industry.  These courses are aimed at young people, or anyone, interested in learning the mechanics of theatre production.  Courses cover a wide range of topics, like stage mechanics, directing, and acting.
