Where: Aquarium of the Bay, Pier 39

Okeanos Intimate is a dance/cirque portrait of the ocean as body, environment, resource, metaphor, and force. It is a performance to inspire and educate audiences about the ocean and connect them deeply to ocean conservation. 

Inspired by the Coral Triangle and California's Kelp forest, this dance/cirque performance incorporates choreography, apparatus, and set design by Capacitor Artistic Director Jodi Lomask and the voices of oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle and marine biologist Dr. Tierney Thys.

Each night we are presenting one ocean scientist who will give a 15 minute talk prior to the performance.

"If I was to sum up the phrase 'creativity for change' I would use one word - Okeanos" David de Rothschild

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 Capacitor takes on the ocean.  Ariel Schwartz - Co.Exist (Fast Company) 

We love watching dance inspired by science, but often the science is left to a few lines in the program. Capacitor never makes that mistake. The dance-circus performance group not only consults with scientists, it workshops with them.   Michael Leaverton - SF Weekly
