A performance provides the same sensory stimuli for the whole audience, but each individual’s perception is unique and become the seed for conversation. Deviant Standards see no reason why entertainment should preclude thought. They do not necessarily seek to impart specific facts or knowledge to the audience, but to rather to create an entertainment setting that fosters and rewards thought.
With a touch of illusion, a dash of circus and a nod to academia, Deviant Standards harks back to an era of curiosity and curiosities, to a time when experimentation, discovery and entertainment shared the same wonderful, vibrant space.
