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 her body and one light, it is a maximisation of the minimal.
This performance was part of Circus City 2023 – The Outsider Edition and took place on Fri 20th & Sun 22nd October 2023 at The Wardrobe Theatre
Full price £13.50, Concessions £10.50 + Booking Fee

Why we love Only Bones
The expert flexibility and trickery of Marina Cherry’s creative contortion becomes the vehicle for an epic journey through snatches of physical storytelling. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always fleeting, they leave a deep impression. Go if you like trippy experiences or wondering if that’s an elbow, an armpit or an alien you are looking at.
