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.
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.
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.
