‘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…’
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.
‘What’s She Like’ launches in collaboration with the National Theatre & Headlong‘s ‘People, Places, Things‘ at the Wyndham Theatre in London’s West End. Its an online game which can be played in a browser, to help people who are addicted to their smartphones. Follow http://www.bit.ly/coneyheadlong to play.
Our Local Agency landed in Northumbria; running secret adventures, play and loveliness with residents of the North East in partnership with Northern Stage. More soon, while this gets much bigger in 2016.
After 15 months in development, REMOTE premiered with Camden Peoples Theatre in April. The new show is played by a sit-down audience imagining the future of the town they live in – and will be visited by more towns soon.
Adventure 1 of A Tail of Two Cities has returned for a 5th time, and continues undercover in a secret location in London’s financial district. If you haven’t played yet, you can always ask us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And Easter has been spent making interactive adventures with a group of Year 5’s at Beckford Primary School – building an interactive world for adults using 32 cardboard boxes.
There’s still playfully secret operations which we can’t tell you much about, not here...
