Capacitor’s mission is to illustrate the personal connections between our audience and the world they inhabit. 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.
