The Contemporary Austin presents Charles Atlas with William Basinski
Taking picture making in time and space into the realm of choreography, New York–based artist Charles Atlas has uniquely bridged the worlds of visual arts, technology, and dance. Atlas wears many hats, among them filmmaker and videographer in the sphere of visual arts and filmic collaborator for dance performances on stage and for television.
As an essential, one-night-only component of Strange Pilgrims, The Contemporary Austin presents a new performance with Atlas center stage, joined by avant-garde composer and musician William Basinski. The two last performed together as part of the 2012 Whitney Biennial.
Atlas and Basinski will use video technology, live music feed, and other elements to create an immersive, thought-provoking experience.
