Fresh Oysters Performance Research

Shared with the exciting performance makers, Fire Drill and Anat Shinar, Fresh Oysters is where it all happens.

What they said

Skewed Visions are singularly aware of the intangible realities of space. The most important among these intangibilities is the simple fact that the space in which we live, through which we move, which we use, enjoy, or dislike is always already claimed. There is no such thing as uncharted territory when it comes to spatial propertyship.

Branislav Jakovljevic -- Frakcija

We rarely have any reason or ability to spatialize making do the way we did watching Losing Kantor. What felt poignant was the paradox of the apparent wish to know from that pitiable space of one’s own, sitting there next to others’, and the sphere of giant people and obscure behaviors outside so complete with difference and beyond comprehension.

Skewed Visions’ The City Itself … questions the basic habits of theatre, and investigates new and viable forms of theatricality.

APPETITE

(excerpts from May 2017 performance)
APPETITE was an experiment in performance made live in collaboration between Skewed Visions co-founder Charles Campbell and composer/sound designer Ted Moore. Inspired by sources as varied as Guy Debord’s The Society of the Spectacle, Chris Marker’s sci-fi film-novel, La Jetee, the poetry of Vladimir Mayakovsky, and the principle of audio feedback, APPETITE manipulated story, sound, and image in performed space.
