Coney make theatre in which you can play and take a meaningful part. REMOTE is a piece of sit-down interactive theatre, interrogating the politics of choice, the Uberisation of everything, and living in an immaterial world.
Tassos Stevens writes about starting REMOTE: playing scale, The Stanley Parable, and an idea in the shower. 'The system of REMOTE is voiced by two performers as the operators of the system, somewhere between call centre operators and Amazon Fulfilment Centre workers. They are onstage but it’s played that they are in another room in the company headquarters, thousands of miles away, remote. So it’s like we’re playing over skype, which can glitch or fail. The operators’ own agency (or lack of it) is a key element in the politics of this system.' Read more
