The 11TH DIMENSION is a post-modern theatrical installation of performance-art cinéma inspired by The Theory of Everything, Antonin Artaud, Deleuze and Guattari’s concepts of “a body without organs”, and Dante’s 9 Circles of Hell. This immersive dramatic spectacle created by award-winning, conceptual-performance artist Roi Escudero, blends vérité, magic realism, surreal humor and a persuasive visual art collage containing nostalgic music hits. Roi uses her background in visual arts and theatre to create immersive works on stage. It is a vérité tale told in the 11th Dimension by Artaud and the existential heroic beings of light, the Bubulinos. Through their travels across space and time, the Bubulinos struggle with the ephemeral and physical troubles of mankind’s present, striving to keep their “divine child” pure. In their quest to rescue the Bird of Truth the Bubulinos, guided by Artaud, will traverse The Inferno of today’s world ruled by the greedy witch Mrs. Mind. Dante and Vergil will help them to arrive at Paradise. ”
“I love the kind of theatre that Roi “Bubi” Escudero creates: it’s imaginative, it’s gutsy, and it’s utterly true to itself. There are no rules in a show like this, save to be ready to embrace whatever comes before you. Such courageous art is not so common these days, and has much to teach its audience and, I venture to guess, its performers as well.” –Martin Denton -nytheater.com
