Mk was established in 2000. The group has developed over the years an inquiry into the ambiguity of bodily states and their alterations, through different formats and collaborations; it is now considered as one of the most lively research ensemble of the Italian scene, with performances in many countries, as Indonesia, USA, Japan, Peru, Germany, France, Hungary, Spain, Portugal and so on.
Mk performances are hosted by festivals and museums, galleries and foundations as the Ethnographic National Museum and the Ara Pacis in Rome, the BiennaleDanza in Venice, the Museion Bolzano, the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, ICI Berlin, Live Arts Week and Mambo Bologna, etc.
The group has often shared projects with visual and performance artists as Luca Trevisani, Margherita Morgantin, Zimmerfrei, David Kern, Roberta Mosca, Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch, Daniela Cattivelli, the geographer Franco Farinelli and so on.
The latest productions by mk propose different formats and performative environments in collaborations with other artists, as is the case of the Platform of Balinese Dance, a special project created by three Italian choreographers for the entire program of the Santarcangelo International Festival 2014 and 2015.
The festival MilanOltre has recently dedicated a focus to the group, staging its four latest creations at Teatro dell’Elfo in Milan (October 2015).
Michele Di Stefano created Upper East Side for Aterballetto and Line Rangers for the Korean National Contemporary Dance Company in Seoul (Autumn 2014). He is the artistic director of AngeloMai Italia Tropici, an irregular platform for live arts in Rome.
He recently published with Margherita Morgantin Agenti autonomi e sistemi multiagente , a book of choreographic instructions and meteorological reports (Quodlibet 2012).
He has been invited for three years in a row at the BiennaleDanza in Venice as teacher and creator. He also helded workshops and projects at Scuola Paolo Grassi Milan and at the National Dance Academy in Rome.
Mk has re-staged in 2015 its first choreographic duet (e-ink) for the project RIC.CI (Reconstruction Italian Contemporary Choreography) with two performers by Aterballetto.

In 2000 Michele Di Stefano wins the “Danza&Danza” Award for contemporary dance. He has been awarded the Silver Lion for innovation in dance at the IX Biennale Danza 2014 in Venice.

Starting 2010 MK is supported by MIBACT Italian Ministry of Culture.
