What they said

City Pages got a sneak preview of Black Water, and you're hearing it from us first: This is not a show you want to miss.The whole piece...is haunting and rather apocalyptic. The real star of the show, though, is the drone. That will scare the living shit out of you, guaranteed.

Sheila Regan, City Pages

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

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

From the video archive


(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.
