Skewed Visions is

Skewed Visions fosters innovative, thoughtful artistic practice, questioning the way things are.

We are not satisfied with received ideas of what an arts experience should be, and we work to change the landscape of daily life.

Skewed Visions belongs to the long tradition that sees art as a fiercely independent response to reality.

What is happening

State of Loss was a by-mail COVID memorial performance commemorating 18 months of loss created by Charles Campbell after the pandemic shut down all performing arts. Layering the abstract with the figurative, State of Loss built a sense of history and loss through accumulation to reveal a palimpsest of absence.

From the Archive

Inspired by research into the nature of time and the combination of dystopian narratives in popular culture with resurgent political and social activism, Birds of the Future explored what it is to recognize one’s place in a seemingly unending cycle of utopian impulses and dystopian realities.

What They Say About Us

EX felt like an x-ray machine for all my baggage… But don’t see it to find out about me. See it to find out about yourself.

Noah Keesecker, Artist

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

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

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 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

Losing Kantor is an intriguing set of moments and images strung together and focused through your own cardboard set of blinders. It’ll make you think differently about theater, and about being an audience member. And it’s, strangely, not the least bit weird or taxing. It’s actually quite refreshing and reinvigorating.

Matthew Everett, Single White Fringe Geek

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.

Space/Site/Place/Home

Fresh Oysters Performance Research, our shared studio space is no more. The world keeps changing and recent changes made it necessary for this six-year shared space to end.

At Skewed Visions we are very familiar with leaving spaces, finding new ones, moving our work to where it can find life. There is no “Home,” there is only what we do and with whom.

Here’s to the next stage.
