Information: Size of the Company: 2 on stage. 2 on the road. Permanent Staff: Co-Artistic Directors Matthew Allen @skeletonp Anton Krasauskas @Anton_SKP Associated Artists: Vincent Krasauskas @Vincent_SKP Who We Are: The Skeleton Project is a West Yorkshire-based art, theatre and performance group, active since 2005. The Skeleton Project is all work created by Matthew Allen and Anton Krasauskas who are Graduates of Leeds Metropolitan University.
What We Do: We create accessible, watchable, humorous work without compromising the desire to take risks. Our work is primarily about the way we view the world and takes the audience on a journey, through text, physical performance, video or sound so externalise the lenses that we see the world through and create a version of our own world on stage. The work is autobiographical and talks directly to the audience, presenting ideas rather than telling a story. The duo are cross disciplinary artists working in video, sound art and performance who specialise in theatre and performance.
Interested in showcasing new talent, The Skeleton Project created NEWK, a regular platform for developing work which takes the form of three short previews of work by other artists. It offers them the opportunity to test material in front of audiences and receive feedback from an established practitioner. Newk is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The Skeleton Project are associate artists of Stage@Leeds.
