"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 Okeanos takes on the ocean"
 
 

“...outstanding and enchanting dancers of Capacitor.”
Wired

"Something to watch and listen to...environmental consevation with a twist, or ten twists."

"...capturing with uncanny precision, the jerky grace of a plant in a time-lapse movie.” 
 
Nature Magazine
 
 
”ATOMIC ENERGY - Maybe it’s something in the San Francisco water supply. Maybe it’s the hot Californian sun. Whatever the reason,  American performance group Capacitor are a most unusual bunch ...  just allow yourself to be entertained - hugely.”
 
The Scotsman
 

 
"...an elegant tangle of athletic modern and aerial dance, film, fashion design, and metal work. Dancers in costumes that somehow integrate water, ribbon, and light morph into plants and animals with the use of interactive props."
