Bare Bones

Linbury Studio Theatre, London

Quote:
Bare Bones might be an austere name for a dance group, but their performance style couldn't be more friendly. Each of their shows is a package of short works created by very different choreographers, so the product not only offers audiences an engaging variety of styles, it gives the creators a chance to play outside their normal remit.

Review of Bare Bones from The Indeependent.

Quote:
The Bare Bones company, set up through Birmingham's Dance Xchange, is designed to be experimental. The dancers are all young, with a repertoire of new short pieces from established and rising choreographers. Staging is minimal, easily toured - taped music, no sets. As a further challenge, all pieces are performed in the round. At the Linbury Studio, the audience sits on four sides: the space is good, but the lighting angles must be adjusted.

Bare Bones
By Lucy Wallis for The Stage


A powerhouse of physical theatre and high energy, aerobic dance is the best way to describe this evening of five new works from five celebrated choreographers for five dancers.

All up in the air
David Dougill for the Sunday Times reviews the "insubstantial Bare Bones".


A problem I find with small-scale performances in the round — or in the square, as it was in the adaptable space of the Linbury Studio, in the bowels of the Royal Opera House — is that one is tempted to scrutinise other members of the audience for their reactions. During a touring programme by the Bare Bones company, from Birmingham’s DanceXChange, my fellow watchers greeted each of the five short works on the bill with equal enthusiasm
