'The future is dark, which is on the whole, the best thing the future can be, I think'
Fortune-telling might be an act of make believe. Or an act of faith, tuning into the dark. Either way, I am going to make an attempt to tell our communal fortune, see our future. If you're with me.
Tassos Stevens is director of Coney, but this is something personal.
I would like to sing you a song, a song from me to you. A song of self acceptance. A song of self forgiveness. A song to lift the weights you carry, so that you may be light, in darkness.
In Floods centres on the act of crying. Choking back tears and letting them flow. How we keep control of our self-presentation and when we lose it. Through a messy inversion of my grandfather's biography and my own, I will explore invisibility, exposure and our relationship with tears.
Elephant in the Room
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 years old in the UK. For this to change, our attitude towards mental illness has to shift. It's time to talk about the Elephant in the Room... Through a unique fusion of physical theatre, hip-hop dance and spoken word, this solo-show explores the pitfalls of male mental illness and its stigma.
Scratch allows artists to test ideas and get audience feedback. The performance you will see is a work in development. Come explore and be the first to discover the future of theatre.
