Only Bones – Daniel Nodder

Only Bones Project


Award-Winning Fringe Performance back by popular demand for one night only before heading to San Diego International Fringe!

Explore the universe in this intimate and mesmerising physical comedy voyage. Join a jelly-like performer as they pluck creatures from evolutionary history and push the boundaries of physics all within 1 metre squared. Only Bones – Daniel Nodder spans the universe from the Big Bang to the invention of fire to a primordial hand ballet with upbeat jazz. You’ll witness the ordinary become extraordinary and the strange become familiar. You’ll see limbs bend in ways you never thought possible, and you’ll never be able to look at your knees the same way again.

Only Bones – Daniel Nodder contains silly physical theatre met with captivating design and soundscapes. Daniel Nodder utilises every part of their elastic body from teeth to toes, accompanied by a playful lightbulb that seems to have a mind of its own. This performance is a visually stunning and joyous experience.

“This is the type of show that you go to a fringe festival for.” ★★★★½ – Arts Hub, Melbourne 2023

“Some of the funniest physical gags I’ve seen in a long time” – Art Murmurs, Wellington 2023.

“It's adept and intensely funny, bold, clever and original.” – Triple R, Melbourne 2023

Only Bones – Daniel Nodder is the eleventh iteration of a series of solo shows grouped together under The Only Bones Project, created by world-renowned circus and physical performer, Thom Monckton. Each version must adhere to a simple set of rules: no text, no set, no props, no narrative, only one light and within one metre square - the ultimate challenge and champion for a skilled physical performer.

Returning a year after the premiere NZ Fringe season in 2023 which saw the team win Outstanding Solo Performance, Tour-Ready Melbourne Fringe, and Tour-Ready San Diego awards.
