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 concept Only Bones (v.1.0) 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. The concept based on the original play by Tom Mockton** continues its transformation by having selected artists create their own versions of the play within a given concept. Using uniformed and restrictive parameters, the selected artists create their own unique performances that follow a similar aesthetic. The guidelines are as follows: only one light, no narrative, no set design, no props, no text, in a limited space. In this way, artists are left only to their own possibilities to create their own world within the set concept.
In parallel to the live performance, these same solo performers are invited to create video projects, placing their exemplary physicality into sparse environments, highlighting our human connection/disconnection to the world.
Written and Performed by Marina Cherry.
Co-direction by Thomas Monckton
The play premiered in December 2020 at the NouNous festival in Helsinki, FI.
