Only Bones is an award-winning new production by New Zealanders Thomas Monckton and Gemma Tweedie and Finland-based physical theatre company Kallo Collective. Using body manipulation and bendy physicality to create an original piece of physical theatre, its quirky low-tech aesthetic involves one performer, one technician, one light, no text, and a stage area of little more than 1m2. With head-juggling and jellyfish, this is a hypnotic show about a lot, using very little.
Kallo Collective is a physical theatre and contemporary circus company specialising in high quality non-text based and tour-friendly shows that appeal to a wide audience. The company performs internationally with bases in Finland, France and New Zealand. The founding members all studied together at the physical theatre school of Jacques Lecoq in Paris and all members have a background in circus training.
