‘If you want to see the future of British theatre now, then Coney is one of the companies to watch…’
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
‘Artists such as Coney are where the real potential of immersive theatre lies…it demonstrates a tangibly different offering to ‘traditional’ fourth wall.’
Duncan Gates, Exeunt Magazine
Welcome to Coney. We are interactive theatre makers – creating games, adventures and play where people can choose to take a meaningful part. Our work takes place anywhere that people gather; in theatres, schools, museums, on the streets and online and always follows the principles of adventure, curiosity, and loveliness.
Led by Coney HQ – a dynamic team of four, we power projects made by bespoke teams of makers assembled from a wider network. We’re supported by a band of 12 associates who are leaders in their field, and feed the overall company manifesto. If you are interested in making play with us, then you are welcome to join the network.
Presenting YOUR CONNECTION IS NOT PRIVATE – a project with Free Word and Camden People’s Theatre. Following the passing of the Snoopers Charter, you are invited to play an immersive game of surveillance, in an attempt to expose how governments and corporations are accessing our private data, what it feels like to have our privacy invaded, and what we can do to protect ourselves. Join us as we enter a post privacy world…
We are delighted to announce our Programme for 2017, including five new Coney projects, a whole host of open events and some exclusive commissions. Whichever the project, you’ll always be invited as a co-creator to genuinely impact what happens. The outcome is that something might have changed, even just a little for the better.
The Droves is a project in development, placing young people aged 7-11 as the creative leads and made for an adult audience. It will be landing in Tower Hamlets soon; if you’re a primary school in the borough, drop us a line.
We’ve kicked off our Network Exchanges. An Exchange is a workshop where everyone is present to play and exchange pieces of practice, and is a wonderful playground for developing games and ideas. If you’re an artist or maker and like the sound of this, we invite you to join the Network of Coney and connect with likeminded, lovely people.
There’s still playfully secret operations which we can’t tell you much about, not here...
