Atlas (O antes de llegar a Barataria)

 The starting references in the creation of Atlas have been the study "Body and Gesture in Cervantes' Quixote" by Bénédicte Torres, the unfinished film "Don Quixote" by Orson Welles and the idea of a shared journey to nowhere. This trip, treated in so many works of literature, gives us a framework to investigate the relationship between two men.

Ramis, Pepe

 Pep Ramis (Manacor) Born in Mallorca into a family of  art and music lovers, he studied the cello, puppetry and singing. Since  childhood, drawing has been part of his daily imaginative life. His  interest in performance began in 1985, when he discovered that this  brought together all his previous experience, with the body at its core.  After working with La Dux formed by Maria Antònia Oliver and María  Muñoz in 1986, in 1987 he took part in the piece Scirocco by Adriana  Borriello, in Italy. In 1989, with María Muñoz, he founded the creation  group Mal Pelo, building sets and installation spaces. He is now a  performance director, dancer – performer and co-director of the creation  centre L’animal a l’esquena in Celrà, Girona.

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq (1952-2012) entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.
