Only Bones v1.0

Only Bones v1.0 is an award-winning production by New Zealanders Thom Monckton and Gemma Tweedie, and Finland’s Kallo Collective.

Monckton’s stage is one metre. There’s a chair, a lamp and a circle painted on the floor. With its quirky, low-tech aesthetic and using just his bendy, wiggling hands and seemingly uncontrollable face, Monckton creates an exquisite piece of micro-physical theatre unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Only Bones premiered in Lapland before becoming a hit show astounding audiences at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. It has featured in an art museum in Mexico City, a converted prison in French Guiana, and 13 different countries around the world.

From the maker behind The Pianist and Caterpillars.

★★★★★ “A meticulously choreographed piece of art. Excellently executed and magically mesmerising.” - Everything Theatre, 2016
