We construct Anosov representations of surface groups into cocompact lattices of simple Lie groups (with a few exceptions). The talk will begin with an account of closed maximal flats in compact higher rank locally symmetric spaces, recovering a result of Deitmar, and explain how to take advantage of such flats for the construction of incompressible surfaces.
