What they said

EX felt like an x-ray machine for all my baggage.... But don't see it to find out about me. See it to find out about yourself.

Noah Keesecker, Artist

The impetus for EX came from grief. In the course of a year, Campbell lost his mother to Alzheimer’s and his sister to cancer. But with its dance sequences, non-linear or narrative structure and visual gags, EX isn’t maudlin or saccharine. EX is a quiet and meditative work, but one filled with palpable physicality, humanity and significance.

Carl Atiya Swanson -- Cake In 15

Losing Kantor is an intriguing set of moments and images strung together and focused through your own cardboard set of blinders.  It’ll make you think differently about theater, and about being an audience member.  And it’s, strangely, not the least bit weird or taxing.  It’s actually quite refreshing and reinvigorating.

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.
