What they said

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

He Woke Up... is compelling and unusual theater, not easily forgotten. It’s performed by clever people tackling an important topic in an offbeat way.

Matthew Everett, Twin Cities Daily Planet

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.

(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.
