The 40th London International Mime Festival includes an award-winning new work, 'Only Bones', created by New Zealanders Thomas Monckton and Gemma Tweedie, in collaboration with Finland's Kallo Collective.
Monckton's stage is one metre square. There’s a chair, a lamp and a circle painted on the floor. With its quirky, low-tech aesthetic and using just his bendy, bickering, wiggling hands and seemingly uncontrollable face, Monckton creates an exquisite piece of micro-physical theatre unlike anything you’ve seen. A hypnotic show about a lot, using very little.
