How we do it

Skewed Visions is member supported. Our independence depends on you.

For $35 per year, you make Skewed Visions possible. Without relying on big money or foundations, we can do what needs to be done. Plus, members get super-major discounts to performances and events.

Fresh Oysters Performance Research

is our shared space at 512 East 24th Street in Minneapolis

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

What they said

Although the project is called Invisible City, it encourages you to observe everything around you with a closer eye than you would otherwise. While you might be looking for some secret entrance, really what is happening is that you're becoming more aware of what you see, hear, and smell around you.

Sheila Regan -- City Pages

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

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.

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.
