body movement tuesday :: capacitor

Performance. Art. Science.
A San Franciso, California group of interdisciplinary movement artists 
that accumulate energy from our technologically impacted culture and 
release it through.  From the movement of the human diaphragm to 
the story of evolution, from the behavior of electricity to genetic 
manipulation, from the birth of the moon to the cycles of digestion -
natural and synthetic processes form the basis for Capacitor’s study 
of performance. Obsessed with the mechanics of the human body as 
well as machines that propel the body through space, Capacitor 
artists have become masters of rigging systems, coutures of wearable 
sculpture, and engineers of large scale props designed to stretch the 
limits of physical poetry.
