Atlas is a critical review of the body and the image memory as subjects. Atlas is a machine to wangle a shared biography. A dialogue circle that links living bodies and body image, where all ages of the bodies, and all ages are present image. It is an immersion (documentary body) to bring the last moments in his re-evocation are always different, moving past moving in each performance. How can now run our body at the service of our history, our biography, serving ourselves?
