"The theatre is neither a set of facilities nor a building. It is the ideology of a place where dramatic encounters are created. Any place can become a theatrical space. At the same time, if no drama develops there, a theatre may simply become part of the landscape of daily life. Those of us who consider ourselves dramatists take it as crucial to be able to organize our imaginations in such a way as to change any location into a theatre. . . to reflect upon theatre is to reflect upon the city."
-- SHUJI TERAYAMA "Manifesto" The Drama Review, December 1975
Skewed Visions specializes in site-specific performance. We create work that embraces site as an endlessly stimulating element of performance. Our performances respond to many aspects of a site and transform the experience of space: its physical characteristics, social context and history, its function and the people who use the site or happen to be there. We believe that any place can become a theatrical space. Our mission is to change, with our works, the “landscape of daily life.”
Skewed Visions is also dedicated to expanding notions of performance through interdisciplinary collaboration as well as actor and audience education and development. Our creative processes are interdisciplinary and open; roles such as director, writer and actor are fluid. We seek to educate local artists and audiences while collaborating with unique local and internationally acclaimed artists and performers.
Skewed Visions was founded in 1996 by Charles Campbell, Gulgun Kayim and Sean Kelley-Pegg.
