In September and October 2007 Skewed Visions presented Strange Love (device/performance) a two-part site-specific performance and event exploring contemporary and historical cultures of fear by re-animating Stanley Kubrick’s Cold War satire Dr. Strangelove, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Charles Campbell and Sean Kelley-Pegg took Kubrick’s classic film as a starting point for two explorations of our contemporary culture of fear in both installation (device — Kelley-Pegg) and multidisciplinary show (performance — Campbell).

The production was awarded “Outstanding Experimental Theater Work of 2007” by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. City Pages awarded the production “Standout Set/Design.”
