Rated X is an audio-visual theatrical performance created by the duo collaboration of video and sound artist Tomas Jefanovas and performer, writer and musician Christopher Brett Bailey.

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.
