Charles Atlas

February 18–20, 2014
Studio 1–Goodman

Charles Atlas was in residence to develop a commissioned theatrical production intertwining dance, live 3D video, and music, working in collaboration with choreographers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener.

Atlas has created numerous works for stage, screen, museum, and television, consistently pioneering the synthesis of technology and performance. A key figure in the development of “media-dance”, in which performance is created directly for the camera, Atlas was videographer-in-residence with Merce Cunningham Dance Company for a decade, and continues to collaborate extensively with choreographers, dancers, and performers including Michael Clark, Yvonne Rainer, Diamanda Galas, and Mika Tajima/New Humans, among many others. His work has been exhibited internationally in such institutions as Tate Modern, London; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; the New Museum, New York; Bloomberg SPACE, London; and the Gwangju Biennial.
