Only Bones v1.0

Only Bones is a solo performance of multi-spendous physical buffoonery performed by Thomas Monckton and designed by Gemma Tweedie. Using body manipulation, circus and clowning Only Bones strips the stage down to one light and one performer and opens up a world where anything is possible. With head-juggling and jellyfish this is a hypnotic show about a lot, using very little.
