Tomas Jefanovas & Christopher Brett Bailey
RATED X // 7:30pm
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 for NOW 18. Supported by Arts Council England. Thanks to Lime Wharf, VFD & Theatre Delicatessen.
This performance contains strobe lighting and loud sounds. Earplugs are available for those who would like them, just ask at the bar.
Rosana Cade & Eilidh MacAskill
MOOT MOOT // 9pm
It’s all about you and your opinions… so get in touch!
Cade and MacAskill take on the roles of doppelgänger radio hosts Barry and Barry, batting banter back and forth in a surreal phone-in talk show. Seeking connection with the world beyond they can only tune into the white noise at the edges of their outer space echo chamber.
MOOT MOOT is a weird and wild trip through never-ending feedback loops; a riotous rhythmic transmission for our times.
Rosana Cade’s powerful immersive Walking-Holding and her autobiographical performance Sister, have toured the country to critical acclaim, as has Eilidh MacAskill’s solo performance piece STUD. They have been performing as a duo for three years in the cult live art riot grrrl boi band Double P*ssy Clit Fuck.
Now they combine forces to create this hilarious new show, with a unique sound world devised by Yas Clarke. See them desperately grasp at meaning in a post-truth world, where all facts are moot.
Co-commissioned by Fierce Festival, The Marlborough Theatre and The Yard Theatre. Supported using public funds by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
There will be a BSL interpreted performance of MOOT MOOT on Thursday 25 January. If you are a BSL user and would like to buy a single ticket to MOOT MOOT please email email@example.com
