Art and science meet and mingle in Capacitor's 'Okeanos'
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.
Pre-show talks, 6:30pm, $20 (with show ticket); performances, 8pm, $25-$35
