As mentioned above, like many of Lomask's works, Okeanos commingles circus artists and dancers. "It doesn't make any difference to me whether a body is a trained dancer's or a contortionist's," she says. "I am really interested in how the human body acts with the [sculptural] forms I have created. A contortionist can interact in a way a dancer cannot, but a dancer can embody an emotion or a concept that circus artists don't have the training to do."
Each Okeanos performance will be preceded by a different set of (separately ticketed) panel discussions surrounding issues of human interaction with the deep. The post-performance "Ocean Solutions Cafés" offer opportunities for continuing the conversation.
