Tate Modern presents the first UK survey of work by video pioneer Charles Atlas, one of the the most acclaimed interpreters of dance, theatre and performance on video. His vibrant, provocative pastiches of narrative, performance and documentary have featured collaborations with international artists, performers and choreographers, including Merce Cunningham, Michael Clark, Leigh Bowery, Yvonne Rainer, Marina Abramovic, John Kelly, Sonic Youth, and Karole Armitage. For Atlas, the theatricality and physicality of dance and performance are points of inquiry into artifice, fiction and reality. This series features legendary videos, including Hail the New Puritan, Because We Must, Put Blood in the Music, and Rainer Variations.

The survey coincides with the European tour of Turning, Atlass new collaboration with Antony and the Johnsons ( www.forma.org.uk ), and Atlass solo exhibition Instant Fame!, which takes place 23 November 3 December 2006 at Vilma Gold ( www.vilmagold.com ). Charles Atlas is a recipient of the John Cage Award 2006.
