Marina Cherry squeaks, zooms, and tiptoes through a micro-space. Fragmenting pieces of a spunky personal universe puddle over the stage for her solo performance, Only Bones v1.6.
Intriguingly engulfing, sporadically disturbing, this quirky conglomeration creates a mishmash of corporal and cerebral manipulations- a follow-up project to the original Only Bones (v.1.0) created by Thomas Monckton. Bursting the bubbles of banality, in a balance between theatrical and physical, Marina nudges the limits, researching innovation amongst extreme constraints, using only one light, it is a maximization of the minimal.
Only Bones Project is a minimalist physical theatre and sparse-video performance project. Using uniform and restrictive parameters solo performers create their own unique live shows with a similar aesthetic. With guidelines of “only one light, no narrative, no set, no props, no text, and all within a limited amount of space”
Original Text from Director Thomas Monckton
The simple aesthetic and minimalistic concept have equally carried over to the production side of the creation; the single light and sound-creation for the show are entirely self-sufficient at the click of one button. The artist has programmed the cues to from start to finish on their own, minus one black out after the audience has entered before the start of the show.
