Duration: 5o mins (approx)
Suitable for: galleries, cinemas, nightclubs and small theatres *available for touring 2018–2019* get in touch


Mind-bending sights, electronic sounds, ear-serrating free jazz and machine gun poetry converge in this new collaboration: RATED X. Tomas Jefanovas pulls futuristic visuals out of retrograde video technologies to sculpt a psychedelic vision of space and time. Christopher Brett Bailey rages and croons. He is an end of days prophet, a lunatic out on a day pass, a jazz poet crash landed from a distant planet. Together they create something chaotic and cosmic. A meditation on holes, voids and mirrors. A ritual of high intensity. A sensory overload. A ketamine noir. Part video installation, part noise gig, part theatre.
