We at The Skeleton Rep want to create and explore modern myth.
We want to use the bare minimum needed in addition to the human instrument to tell these stories.
We need others to do it with us.
We can show great things given a script, actors, and a space. We can experience even bigger things when that script asks those actors to reach up and out to their roles, rather than drag the parts down and in. We need a space to explore. We choose to believe that whatever space we may have, it is perfect for what we are about to do. Let us solve the problems of the script together, using body and space as often as possible. Let us figure out how to demonstrate what might seem impossible.
The goal is to create new work and present it honestly, with purity and expression through the body. When we make theatre together with fulfilling, challenging, and interesting roles that also push us past ourselves, we strengthen our community and the theatre cannon, by adhering to what is most rich, most communal, and most articulate.
