Capacitor is a creative experience agency that often works with scientists to create events and installations about the natural world. Our visually-stunning, auditory experiences are delivered on abstract sculptures by athletic dancers, acrobats, aerialists, and contortionists. These displays, grounded in scientific understanding, offer many portals into the work for audiences of all ages.
Performance, Art, and Science:
Born out of the collision of cultural influences found only in the San Francisco Bay Area, our performances explore the patterns and relationships inherent in nature and the cosmos. Through dance, interactive video, cirque nouveau, live music, and large-scale movement sculptures, Capacitor humanizes abstract scientific concepts, transcending cultural barriers and widening the scope of basic human experience for audiences of all ages.
In the spirit of scientific inquiry, Capacitor uses a laboratory-style creative process, called Capacitor Lab. For each new work, we assemble a cross-disciplinary team of the world's leading artists and scientists to explore a specific concept, find common threads, and create a shared vocabulary. From this collaboration, a performance is born. This process is at the core of who we are as a company, taking us and our audiences to unexpected, original places.
