Becki looks out and drinks a cup of coffeeBecki Haines

Becki is the JCEO | Executive Producer for Coney and is passionate about the role the arts can play in wellbeing and our quality of life. Becki oversees the programme and Coney’s cross-sector producing partnerships, while giving Coney resilience and providing a framework that supports the company’s ambitions and growth.

She has over 12 years experience producing performance work with a focus on inspiring settings outside of traditional cultural buildings or using those buildings imaginatively; from garages, to cafes, schools, foyers, libraries, pavements, disused shops, museums, probation services, workplaces, and once at a funeral. Her work has been presented at the National Theatre, Southbank Centre, the Barbican, the Roundhouse, Glastonbury, Latitude and extensively across the UK. She’s produced projects in 9 countries; from a live silent film on the lake inside the Museum of Art in Kochi, to a 5-minute Oliver Jeffers adaptation for one child at a time at an orphanage 4-hours drive outside of Cairo.

Alongside her work with Coney, Becki is also the Co-Director for the Total Theatre Network; building recognition and support for the independent performance sector in the UK across performance, dance, circus, live art, cabaret and beyond. Each year producing the Total Theatre Awards, Becki promotes discussion around experimentation, risk and excellence through non-hierarchy and peer to peer dialogue, championing community led decision making. In recent years the Total Theatre Awards have recognised artists including Jess Thom, Le Patin Libre, Selina Thompson, Nikki & JD, In Bed with My Brother, Le Gateau Chocolat, Circumference, Scottee and Oona Doherty.

Becki is a member of The Creative Industries Federation, The Allbright Academy, the School of Social Entrepreneurs and is a Clore 42 Alumni.

Previous artists Becki has worked with include Bootworks, Theatre Ad Infinitum, Mark Storer, Blind Summit, Ridiculusmus, 1927 Productions, The Paper Birds and Shunt.
