Tim DAX is currently shooting his first starring role in a heavy metal murder musical feature film entitled, “Mr. Bricks”.
DAX recently appeared as Incitatus, Caligula’s horse and gladiator Germanicus in Alfred Preisser and Randy Weiner’s Off-Broadway production of CALIGULA MAXIMUS, which recently ended its twice extended run at La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre on April 17th.
Set on the last night of the infamous dictator’s life, CALIGULA MAXIMUS is an outrageous theatrical extravaganza, combining elements of a circus, a play with music, and a nightclub installation, co-written by Alfred Preisser (ARCHBISHOP SUPREME TARTUFFE) and Randy Weiner (THE DONKEY SHOW).
Ryan Knowles starred as Caligula, adult film star and Penthouse Pet Justine Joli as his wife Caesonia, Lady Circus troupe aerialist Anya Sapozhnikova as his sister Drusilla and JerZ Short as circus master Helicon. The show featured award-winning competitive bodybuilders Myra Adams and Roxanne Edwards, and an outrageous collection of over two-dozen circus performers, wrestlers, showgirls and freaks.
A commercial run of Alfred Preisser and Randy Weiner’s CALIGULA MAXIMUS is in the works, and will be produced by Stephen Pevner, Hammerstein & Weiner, LLC, Christopher McElroen, Alfred Preisser and Kingsize, USA. Stayed tuned to www.caligulamaximus.com.
The actor and Coney Island Sideshow tattooed muscleman was riveting in CALIGULA MAXIMUS.
“Tim DAX is a work of art,” said Alfred Preisser, CALIGULA MAXIMUS director and co-writer. ” In a lot of ways, he embodies the essential spirit of our CALIGULA MAXIMUS, which on many levels is a celebration of individuality.”
Of his experience with CALIGULA MAXIMUS, DAX shared, “Pride in knowing I helped create, nourish and sustain moments that most people can’t even dream. Unless you experience live theatre you cannot completely fathom the spirituality of it. I act on camera and in the theatre and nothing can replace the living, breathing, evolving, emotional and vulnerable collective each of us is connected to in CALIGULA MAXIMUS.
I will take with me a smile. Whenever I think back to this moment in time it will cause me to smile and appreciate the life I live.
My goal is to be in Hollywood very soon making rock-um sock-um, kick ass, action, sci fi, horror and any other type of film. And then of course on to children’s films… but that’s further along my path.”
