Boneyard Tales is an archived show and not now available.
Rag and Bone struggle along, making ends meet in a world drowning in rubbish. They dance, delight and despair in their scrap world, finding treasures and telling stories to while away the time. But are they alone? What are those strange noises? Did that piece of junk move?
In the Bone Yard live a troupe of scavengers and scrap poets, who forage their surroundings for junk and threads of song and story. The ‘Bone Yard Tales’ might be a series of myths telling of the destructive power, fecundity and addictive nature of waste but are probably a few tales spun out by Rag to distract Bone from bashing bits of metal all the time.
