Description
An exploration of 20 years of Capacitor's signature synthesis of visual magic and raw athleticism.

Capacitor is a dance, cirque, and sculpture company founded by Artistic Director Jodi Lomask. The work often engages scientists to create performances and installations about the natural world. The company’s visually-stunning experiences are delivered on abstract structures by athletic dancers, acrobats, aerialists, and contortionists. Lomask designs structures out of steel, bungee, fiberglass, and wood, and her choreography unites unique characters with distinctive movement for Capacitor’s signature synthesis of visual magic and raw athleticism. Celebrating the company’s 20 years anniversary, Left to Her Own Devices is a distillation of all of the company’s work to-date, focusing on physical structures—which have essentially been oppressive problems for the performers to overcome—to explore the theme of liberation.

Fri, May 18: YBCA Members at the All Access level and above are invited to a Premium Member Exclusive event with Capacitor Artistic Director Jodi Lomask.
