new workshops from Skewed Visions
A Practical Guide to Skewing
Beginning September 15, 2012

Welcome to an ongoing series of workshops designed to activate creative thinking by focusing on three principles fundamental to Skewed Visions work: Space, Object, and Encounter. Not lessons in a technique or style, this is a series of experimental investigations of principles fundamental to our 15-year history of creating and performing original site-specific works. Taught by Skewed Visions founders, each workshop offers practical tools we use to create site-based, interdisciplinary works and offers other ways of thinking about the world, artistic work, and their intersection.
Taught by founder Gülgün Kayim, these workshops offer tools to explore the attributes of a site and ways to develop performance work from them. The Space workshop is two two-hour sessions, $60.
First Space workshop September 15 and 29, 9:30am – 11:30am.
Taught by founder Charles Campbell, these workshops offer a practice and a perspective for creating new work using the relationship of performer and object. This workshop will be offered monthly to develop the practice. One two-hour session, $35 ($60 for both).
First Object workshop October 6, 10am – noon.
Second Object workshop November 3, 10am – noon.
Taught by founder Sean Kelley-Pegg, these workshops offer ways to make use of the audience/performer relations using both technology and placement. One two-hour session, $35.
First Encounter workshop October 20, 10am – noon.
