‘Coney are pushing at the boundaries of theatre and of technology’
Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor
‘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, we power projects made by bespoke teams of makers assembled from a wider network. We’re supported by a band of 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 our Network.
On Saturday 20 Feb we brought back How We Save The World – an interactive story-game, made in partnership with environmental scientists and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Audiences joined us on an adventure through moments in history where change might be possible, to explore how we can save the world from the worsening climate crisis.
We’ve recently launched the Guild of Coney, and welcomed a host of brilliant makers to join us as Associates in a renewed practice-sharing programme. Find out more and meet them here!
Visit the Pop Up Playhouse to find Coney pieces you can play anywhere, at any time. Find out more and explore the Playhouse here.
There are more virtual events in the pipeline for our Network in the next few months. If you’re an artist or maker and like the sound of connecting with like-minded people through Playtests, Exchanges and Socials, we invite you to join the Network of Coney.
Find out more about what we got up to last year in our latest Annual Review for 2018-19. And there’s still playfully secret operations which we can’t tell you much about, not here…
