Okeanos Intimate is a dance/cirque portrait of the ocean as a body, environment, resource, metaphor, and force. It is a performance to inspire and educate audiences about the ocean and connect them deeply to ocean conservation.

"If I was to sum up the phrase 'creativity for change' I would use one word - Okeanos" David de Rothschild

If you thought science class was boring, perhaps this insane spectacle of dance, acrobatics, and video will be more to your liking. In their latest performance, science-based dance troupe Capacitor takes on the ocean. Ariel Schwartz - Co.Exist (Fast Company)

We love watching dance inspired by science, but often the science is left to a few lines in the program. Capacitor never makes that mistake. The dance-circus performance group not only consults with scientists, it workshops with them. Michael Leaverton - SF Weekly

Inspired by the Coral Triangle and California's Kelp forest, this dance/cirque performance incorporates choreography, apparatus, and set design by Capacitor Artistic Director Jodi Lomask, the voices of oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle and marine biologist Dr. Tierney Thys, dance film by RJ Muna and Joseph Seif, and underwater cinematography by David Hannan.
