About the show “Only Bones v.1.6”

Lanky loidlings.

Squishy Schloompings.

Spiky Spa-doo-dlings.

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 one light, it is a maximisation of the minimal.

About the artist

Originally from Montana in the US, Marina dedicated her childhood to gymnastics and dance, as well as painting, and orchestral music on the bassoon, until discovering the world of circus. She was accepted into ENC (École Nationale de Cirque) in Montreal in 2014, and then continued here studies at ESAC (L’École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque) in Brussels from 2016 to 2019. During her study years, she immersed herself in performing arts of all sorts finding her singularity in the pockets between disciplines. She is simultaneously pursuing a degree in philosophy with the University of London (online) slated to finish in 2022.

Her solo show “Only Bones v.1.6”is based on the original concept of Thomas Monckton—a “Kallo Collective” production. She is as well working in diverse projects around Europe including upcoming 2022 production TALWEG by Belgian/Swedish dance and interdisciplinary company Petri Dish, the new creation KANO with Belgian Company Les Argonauts for 2023, and PEPI—a comedic-theatrical dance show produced by Le Groupe.

Notably the future holds work of ‘The Anthropocene Project’ with Sanna Kekäläinen in late 2022 and future associated projects with Jo Strømgren in Norway starting in 2022.

Marina is now based between Stockholm, Sweden and Brussels, Belgium.
