Capacitor Dance Company presents

Capacitor: Okeanos

Thu Nov 4, 2010 - Mon Apr 15, 2013
Multiple locations
$25 - $100
Benefit, City, Dance, Modern Dance


Okeanos is a multidisciplinary portrait of the ocean as body, resource, metaphor, and force. It is a performance to inspire and educate audiences about the ocean and connect them to ocean conservation.

Okeanos features the distinctive artistic and technical components that Capacitor has become known for inventive and articulated dance vocabulary, contemporary circus, abstract structures that mirror nature, poetic integration of audio/video multimedia, sculptural costumes, scientifically supported content, and conservation partnerships.

Under the Artistic Direction of Jodi Lomask, Capacitor's four dancers, four circus artists, and two musicians perform within a constructed oceanic video / aerial / performance environment. Interviews with scientific advisers Dr. Sylvia Earle and Dr. Tierney Thys punctuate the electronic sound score. For more information, please visit
