Becki & Tassos have been hanging out since 2014. They first met in 2011, when Becki asked to borrow his laptop charger at an event. But he doesn’t remember that, which is a shame.
Together they make Coney happen – sharing all sorts of mutual ambitions about reaching people unexpectedly, wherever they happen to be, by whatever clever means we know how and only ever doing something if its going to be meaningful for the people involved.
Becki has almost years experience producing performance work for unusual spaces and settings; from garages, to cafes, foyers, libraries, pavements, disused shops and once at a funeral. Her work has been presented at the National Theatre, Southbank Centre, the Barbican, the Roundhouse, Glastonbury, Latitude and extensively across the UK. She’s toured projects to 9 different countries worldwide in partnership with the British Council; from a live silent film on the lake inside the Museum of Art in Kochi, to a 5-minute Oliver Jeffers adaptation for one child at a time at an orphanage of 78 children 4-hours drive outside of Cairo.
Alongside her work with Coney, Becki is Co-Producer for Total Theatre; building recognition for the independent theatre sector, Producer and Company Director for Bootworks; creating work for unusual spaces, a Trustee for Deafinitely Theatre and Chair of Two Destination Language.
Previous artists Becki has worked with include Theatre Ad Infinitum, Blind Summit, Ridiculusmus, 1927 Productions, The Paper Birds and Shunt. Becki is a Clore 42 alumni, her first office was a 3m x 3m square jigsaw piece in an abandoned office block and her favourite cake is lemon.
Tassos thinks she’s the least playful person he’s ever met.
