ATLAS is a initiative by director
Paula Isiegas and actor Gabriel Molina, as a response of their need
of a international ensemble that could embody different projects
developed in different countries.
ATLAS borns as a nomad group,
gathering artists working with body movement of different
nationalities, that can move, work and create all around the world.
The number of artists can change from one project to another, as
each project is a piece that works independently.
The projects are developed as directed
The work principles are rigor,
exploration of rhythm and objects in relation with the body and
space, combination, and above all a deep dive in the creative
process. These are characterized by the use of work frames and
setting limits the artists have to face and overcome.
The pieces look for innovative
staging, precision, combination of techniques and languages,
subtlety in the acting. They aim to be enjoyed and reachable to
everybody, all over the world. For this its usual to work without
spoken text, using body and movement as expressive tool.
Actually ATLAS develops its work
between Spain, Belgium and Denmark; where they have been at
residence at Nordisk Teatrlaboratorium, co-producer of the new
performance (im)possible lives.
