The Bone Ensemble invent shared places where curious spirits discover new connections.
We create inventive, theatrical performances, often with original music, which offer a new lens and encourage our audiences to look afresh at our world in unexpected ways. We tell stories about vital themes and topics, which aim to transform understanding and behaviour. And we do it with heart and humour.
The Bone Ensemble was founded in 2002 by Adam Ledger and Jill Dowse, who have more than 50 years’ experience (between them!) in creating new work and making unusual things happen in unusual spaces, from piazzas in Denmark to castles in Austria, from canals in Stoke-on-Trent to a touring caravan. We also work in village halls, galleries, schools, theatres and arts centres. Creating meaningful encounters with our audiences is at the heart of what we do.
