Celebrating the company’s twenty-year anniversary, Left to Her Own Devices: 20 years of Sculpture in Motion is a distillation of all of Capacitor’s work to date, focusing on physical structures—which have essentially been oppressive problems for the performers to overcome—to explore the theme of liberation. Capacitor is a dance, cirque, and sculpture company founded by artistic director Jodi Lomask, whose work often engages scientists to create performances and installations about the natural world. The company’s visually stunning experiences are delivered by athletic dancers, acrobats, aerialists, and contortionists on abstract structures Lomask designs out of steel, bungee, fiberglass, and wood. Her choreography unites unique characters with distinctive movement.
"These devices are tools for liberation. They are tools to overcome a sense of invisibility and insignificance. Over the last twenty years, they have allowed me to experience what I was unable to with my body alone. By giving myself the physical experience of something different, I could actualize that new state of being. In this way, these devices, both choreographic and sculptural, are spells I cast to change my life. Performing this work, here, for you tonight is a dream come true. Thank you for coming on the journey." Jodi Lomask
