In Greek Mythology Atlas was the one condemned to stand with the Earth and Heavens on his shoulders. To turn the theater back into a political space. 100 people on stage.

A landscape of people with different professions, claiming their position in society, individually as well as in group, mapping a sort of “atlas” of the complex cohesion of a social tissue. One of the first ideas for this piece were the ideas of the artist Joseph Beuys: “We are the revolution” and “Everybody is an artist”.
