The Maniacs Of The Fourth Dimension – an art collective created and led by Davis Alexander Whitfield – was formed in the summer of 2014 and has been constantly evolving ever since. The inspiration for the name and concept of this group stems from a fictional novel that exists in Kurt Vonnegut's vast universe of literary works, most notably mentioned in his famous novel Slaughterhouse Five. Like the wondrous yet seemingly inconsistent narratives of Vonnegut, the members of this art collective are numerous but they are not all recurring members at every performance.
The Maniacs Of The Fourth Dimension consists of musicians, vocalists, poets, writers, dancers and fine artists - all who have made inimitable contributions to the group as a whole. As the leader of this group, Whitfield strives to blend American jazz tradition, contemporary art/music and a limitless imagination together to create something fourth dimensional. It is very much his own vision aided and influenced by the outstanding contributions of his fellow artists. At any of this collectives performances the audience and performers alike will – however willingly – be traveling to the fourth dimension with maniacal Whitfield piloting the ship. This particular arrangement of The Maniacs Of The Fourth Dimension will consist of five pieces:
