Established in 2019, Burning Bones Physical Theatre is based in Atlanta, Georgia. We create work that is bold in scope, personal in approach, and uncompromising in our commitment to process.
Our theatre company seeks to build community engagement with compelling physical performances and contribute to an original and fearless live performance and quality training culture in Atlanta by equipping actors with concrete skills they can take forward to meet the demands of the industry.
Burning Bones accomplishes this by creating productions that include personalized skill development for its cast in the rehearsal process, offering workshops to the community, and prioritizing local artists and organizations in its partnerships.
We are focused on the development of performance in the southeast and the continued development of Atlanta as a site for unique and exciting artistic works. As we believe that process cannot be divorced from product, we are committed to engagement in processes that are transparent, responsive, evolving, respectful, and supportive for those involved in creating each production (cast, crew, and community). We draw on several traditions which form a core part of our creative practice and lineage including butoh, clowning, Fitzmaurice Voicework®, and Organic Intelligence®.
