Book Tickets

Part of Whose London Is It Anyway?, a festival of theatre, performance and discussion exploring the changing face of our capital city.

Presented by Coney, represented here by Tassos Stevens and William Drew

Sun 10 Jan, Playday

Coney hosts a playday for making scratch adventures, a workshop teaching toolkits for playing in public/corporate space, and using the same magic phone platform as powers Adventure One. We’ll help you create an idea for a short piece, and then support you to turn it into something to be scratched on 24 Jan.

The workshop is facilitated by Tassos Stevens and William Drew, who co-created Adventure One for Coney. It’s open to anyone with any making experience, although it’s recommended you play Adventure One first. For details of application, send an email to [email protected] saying January Playday.

Sun 24 Jan, Salon

Coney is hosting an open event on making play on the line between public space and corporate space, and exploring ideas around the commons.

From 12 noon a map will be unfurled of scratch adventures and other playful experiences to be discovered in the neighbourhood of CPT. You’ll need a mobile phone with credit to send text messages in order to play.

From 3pm. we’ll reconvene in the theatre and host a salon – first with curated provocations from speakers segueing into an open space discussion – on what it means to make play in this space, and the politics of public space and the commons.

Coney is also presenting Adventure One in association with Whose London Is It Anyway? – see here for more details.

Catch A Scratch and Salon: Playing the lines in public space in a double bill with Regeneration (6.30pm) or E15 (8.30pm). Two tickets for just £16!
