Commissioned by and presented as part of the 6th edition of International Summer Festival of Art The Access Point.
Join Coney for The Delegation, a brand new interactive performance that invites you to reflect on how our societies – while geographically disparate – find ourselves together in this time of crisis, experiencing the withering of post-pandemic capitalism, and pondering the ideal contents of a hotel minibar.
We at Hotel Zajec are honoured to welcome* you to this historic meeting of delegations from your two great countries.
May business be struck, accord be reached, and diplomacy secure that most elusive of prizes. We’re here to help. Over the course of a long hot weekend, let’s hope you can deal a better future into existence (and avoid an international incident on the dancefloor).
*Of course because of the crisis, the hotel is not quite finished. And anyway it is not safe for you to travel. But we welcome you to our online establishment, and truly hope you enjoy your stay.
You’ll be free to explore the activities in the hotel and its attached conference centre. You’ll meet and exchange with players from both delegations. You will be invited to play as a diplomat, dealer or culture-broker, but it’s always up to you how much or little you play. If you want, you can always shut yourself in your hotel room (turn off your video and mike) and enjoy your amenities.
