Only Bones v1.9

14 Oct 2023

Kallo Collective & Matt Pasquet

A naked back, every muscle is visible as the muscles strain. Arms are over the head, curled over like crab's claw's
Half a face is visible. The eye looks off to one side at a hand, curled over like a claw
Two fingertips touch in the darkness. There is a spark of light between them
Two feet cover one another, like a small child's
A naked back is taught. Arms are raised like claws. Every muscle is visible
A naked back is lit with green and gold light
A hand reaches out of the darkness towards a light
A hand reaches through the darkness to touch a spark of light

A journey of evolution, from birth to consciousness.

Constrained to one square metre of space, Matt Pasquet struggles through a maze of shape shifting surroundings to the edge and beyond. With an immersive Foley soundscape, a dash of acrobatics, a sprinkle of clown and a fist full of Kung Fu.
