WHO WE ARE
The #LoveDimension is a performance art experience and collaboration between techno party love clown Ole Lie Vandal and his partner, interstellar alien S.H.E.W.H.O. Join them as imagination comes to life through the arts of storytelling, music and audience participation infused improv as we evoke the #LOVEdimension. Vandalhaus Newark is the name of our studio and collective.
Vandalhaus Newark produces media of all varieties. Graphic Design Solutions, Music and Entertainment Content, Visual Art, Video Art, Theatre and Performance Pieces. From 2017 through 2019 Vandalhaus Newark ran a 24/7 live streaming IP channel. The channel’s goal was to promote and produce local arts & culture: feature films, video art, live performances, music videos, documentaries, interviews, talk shows, and dance videos curated from and by the Newark community.
Our collective’s next steps are to build our coding, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality skills in order to use these in tandem with our amassed archive of content to tell stories through new digital media. As the world transitions out of this pandemic we see this as a transformative moment in the performing arts and will be building on the experience of working on our streaming channel to provide art patrons with more interactive mobile and digital platforms for engaging with content.
The goal of the #LoveDimension has always been to engage and uplift the community through sacred clowning techniques, holding space for improv fueled conversation and uplifting communication. In adherence towards that goal we held weekly Open Studio sessions from 2017-2019 where on Tuesdays or Sundays the public was invited to participate in what we casually called a jam, but really took a variety of artistic forms not solely restricted to music.
Simultaneously a goal of Vandalhaus is to record, preserve and distribute the work of the performative artists working in Newark and surrounding areas. These artists would make up the bulk of the participants in the #LoveDimension Jams, which were always recorded. We also took these efforts out of the studio. Through 2017 – 2020 we compiled an archive of performances recorded at multiple collaborating open mics around town including 360 poetry, EvoluCulture, CryOutCave and QXTs.
These open jams and our appearances at local open mics gained us a great network of artists. We serve this community by curating live streamed performances we call the … in the #LoveDimension Series as well as the #LoveDimension Show concert series and #LoveDimension Summer Festival.

The manifestation OLE, a being of pure sound, was born into the love dimension during the mechanization of the industrial revolution. Before that, it simply lived within beautiful repetition and the whizz and bur of assembly. Finally, it caught onto electrical transmissions and found itself within the machination of all things.
This is the LIE. This is the LIE. This is the LIE. The LIE is everywhere around you. The LIE is everything around you. The LIE is everything you, see, touch, feel, smell, hear, eat, think, live, or believe. This is the LIE. The LIE is you. The LIE is me. I am Daniel Ovalle. I was born a day, in a place, did some things, and will continue, but this is the LIE.
Evil forever! As long as it is for the Greater Good. Born sometime around 1470 in northern Spain, the pirate only named through the curses of his enemies as VANDAL traveled the mediterranean and the East Indies until his presumed death in 1518.His current decedent just happens to be the LIE, and when this reincarnation/possession takes place you can expect his vengeance to take the form of hardcore noise music, infused with horror core hip hop, in a combination that is sure to stir some spirits.

I was born and raised in Lima, Perú. Grew up surrounded by the chaos and constant innovation of the printing industry, and got involved in the design wing of our family company at an early age. Yet dance, art and theatre were always present in my business-minded upbringing. I always had a very inquisitive mind and wanted to challenge the ever-present rhetoric that art was not a viable way to make a living.
Come 2011, I moved to the US to pursue a higher education in Theatre Arts and Graphic Design. Ever since this city has become my home away from home. I’m in love with it’s history and arts scene. I have been working with Newark Arts and NJPAC since graduation and both organizations have allowed me to explore two of my career aspirations at the same time!
And to exercise my creative side my partner and I created Vandalhaus, a design and multimedia production studio, to get even more involved with the arts and produce original content. Bring forth the #LoveDimension!
