Fringe Festival: Only Bones

(Te Auaha, 65 Dixon Street, Te Aro, Wellington)

Monckton’s stage is one metre square.  There’s a chair, a lamp and a circle 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. An hypnotic show about a lot, using very little.

From a prestigious national museum in Mexico to a derelict mansion in Latvia and a much-too-large theatre in Hangzhou, China.
