Bone Marrow Theatre is a Melbourne based physical theatre company. Our objective is to speak with a language of action, creating theatre that has meaning and is relevant to Australian audiences, that is new, inspiring and which moves. Exploring different styles of theatre including chorus, masks, dance and circus arts to create Theatre and Workshops, working collaboratively through improvisation and with a diverse range of artists to create a unique style of theatre.Bone Marrow Theatre believes it is crucial to expand Australian Theatre by using a range of different performing arts and to explore the telling of a story with movement without having to rely on text. Creating in this visceral style of theatre, we believe it will have a profound effect on our audience and will show a story rather than just tell it.
Bone Marrow Theatre was accepted for The Kingston Arts Centre – New Blood Residency in 2013 where we developed our inaugural production Exodus and consequently as the 2014 ‘Company in Residence’ at Revolt Melbourne Artspace. During 2014 we created and produced La Peste, our first development of Tales from Ovid and also ran a series of different physical theatre workshops.
Bone Marrow Theatre are always keen to find new collaborators interested in creating physical theatre. We hold open auditions for each project depending on the projects requirements. Currently there are no auditions being held, to keep updated you can like the Facebook Page.
