Praise for previous shows:

“a visceral, world-burning piece… a brutal, vital, incredible show.”

Total Theatre

‘An absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia’ ★★★★ The Guardian

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.

Tomas’ mesmerising visuals have been seen at Field Day and Houghton Festivals and Christopher’s ‘verbal gymnastics’ celebrated in his extraordinary sell-out This is How We Die (★★★★ The Guardian, Time Out, The Stage). Watch them fuse to create something chaotic and cosmic. A meditation on holes, voids and mirrors. A ritual of high intensity. A sensory overload. A ketamine noir.

Co-commissioned by The Yard Theatre, supported by Lime Wharf and Arts Council England.
