Charles Atlas

Charles Atlas is one of the premier interpreters of dance, theater, and performance on video. He has been creating films of this genre since the early 70’s, and continues to redefine the art form with each advancement of technology. His work is exhibited and broadcast worldwide, and Charles is generally known as 'the man' when it comes to making video creations related to dance and the performing arts. I first worked with Charles during the making of Merce Cunningham: A Lifetime of Dance, when his production was filming while we were on tour in France, 1999.
