By Kallo Collective 

Fri 15 June / 7.30pm


Only Bones is an award-winning new production by the international physical theatre company Kallo Collective and acclaimed production company Show Pony.  Created by London International Mime Festival performer Thom Monckton and Parisian school Lecoq LEM graduate Gemma Tweedie, Only Bones uses body manipulation and a contemporary approach to clowning to create an original physical theatre. Its quirky low-tech aesthetic involves one performer, one technician, one light, no text, no narrative, no set, and a stage area of little more than 1m2. 

★★★★ “The creativity that has been poured into this piece is beyond measure, it is enchanting, engaging and enthralling” (Edinburgh Guide) 

★★★★ “45 minutes of body-generated invention that will likely send you back out into the night with a spring in your step” (The List) 

★★★★★ “a glorious salute to one man’s remarkable physicality” (The Herald Scotland) 

★★★★★ “Monckton’s ability to manipulate the smallest parts of the body, not just to do this expertly well but while establishing a playful relationship with the audience, is mind-blowing” (Across The Arts)
