Have you ever dialled a wrong number, picked up an unexpected call, or had one that changed the course of your life?
How much potential do these simple devices, our telephones, hold? And what do they tell us about our relationships, their fragility, the connection we experience, and the distances we travel?
Telephone is a live and gently interactive* storytelling performance, all about conjuring that thing we’ve all been missing.
Dial in and experience miraculous moments of connection as stories are shared that might somehow bring us together, across cities, countries, even hemispheres.
No audience is ever the same, therefore no performance is either. You never know who you might miss…
*This piece is gently interactive. We will encourage you to keep your camera on and will sometimes ask you to talk with some other audience members. But of course, you can opt out any time.
If you would like to find out more about booking Telephone for festivals, courses or private performances, give us a knock.
Not only thematically eloquent in the way it is exploring fragility, connection and distance, but […] also asking questions about what it means to be in a room and play together on Zoom. Coney are pushing at the boundaries of theatre and of technologyLyn Gardner, Stagedoor
Some nice things people have said about previous outings of Telephone:
Beautiful, meditative stuff. It’s the best use of this platform for a theatre piece I’ve seen yet
Intimate, warm hearted & thought provoking
Food for the soul
A wonderful example of how technology such as Zoom can be reimagined and used creatively… Felt properly energised afterwards
