‘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 seven, we power projects made by bespoke teams of makers assembled from a wider network. We’re supported by a band of 18 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.
Our 2019 Programme Announcement has landed! Read more about what we’ll be up to in the next year here.
Coming up in the first week of April, 16-25 year olds can join Coney Associate Michelle McMahon and other brilliant makers for a free week-long workshop, culminating in a playful, subversive and rebellious performance. Spark Change Through Play with Coney is part of Greenwich & Lewisham Young People’s Theatre Progression season – find out more and apply for a place here.
We’ve announced a brand new project commissioned by the Natural History Museum – COMPANION: MOON. Spanning multiple art forms and science, COMPANION: MOON is a beautiful, gentle and open encounter performed alongside Museum of the Moon, an awe-inspiring large scale artwork by Luke Jerram. Experience it from May to August this year.
