#var:page_name# cover

Bare Bones is a series of six powerful English short plays performed minimalistically.

The creator strongly believes that Content is the real King and puts this belief to test. So Bare Bones does not take help of modern technology for adding to the experience of story-telling because the team is convinced that the plays can connect without technological assistance. They deliver the play in its bare bones form: No light effects (just binary on/off between the short plays), no music or sound effects, no props (minimal), no costume, and no makeup.

At Bare Bones, you experience a wide spectrum of dramatic possibilities that explore the entire range of human sensibilities: from primitive to profound, from serious to hilarious, from hatred to love, from extremely witty to downright stupid, from shamelessly honest to outrageously cocky, and from superficial to spiritual.
