Coney are interactive theatre-makers.
We create 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.
The experience starts when you first hear about it, and only ends when you stop thinking and talking about it.
We make play with ideas that resonate in the world around us: from the everyday to the extraordinary. Our work is inspired by the belief that the world can be magical place where ordinary people can do extraordinary things. Collaboration and dialogue are at the heart of how we make work: with audiences, peers, partners, and a network of makers.
