\\Tomas Jefanovas & Christopher Brett Bailey’s RATED X //
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.
Their show will be at The Yard Theatre from the 22nd to the 29th of January 2018

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 and The Marlborough Theatre. Supported by The Yard Theatre. Supported using public funds by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Tomas Jefanovas is a London-based visual artist and graphic designer. He is a recent Royal College of Art graduate and is originally from Vilnius, Lithuania. Tomas uses video and sound synthesisers and works with space to create installations and live performances. His work is often abstract, exploring the themes of emptiness, nothingness and repetitiveness.
As a designer Tomas works for clients in the arts, many of which are major London arts institutions and theatres. He also has an ongoing collaboration with performance artists Bourgeois & Maurice. Tomas has created their album covers, posters and show visuals, as well two short films Mervyn Blackwood and Busy, with Bourgeois & Maurice starring.
