Trophy

STO Union

 

 

A stunning pop up tent city to explore. Overflowing with light-filled tents. Hundreds of true stories of change. A living installation in continual transformation. Featuring everyone we know.

 

Walk through a pop-up city of stories. Comprised of a cluster of tents, Trophy lights up downtown Calgary. Inside each tent, encounter a person who tells the true story of a moment in their life when everything changed. Move through the city of stories, visit as many tents as you feel drawn to. The installation’s evolution is determined by your actions.

As the days pass, the tents transform into multicoloured structures covered in stories of change. Trophy is a living monument to the experiences that make up our lives and a compelling conversation about change.

The experience of Trophy becomes an expression of all participants’ stories, a compelling exploration and conversation about how we all experience change.

In addition to the performances, there will be open house hours, during which audience members are invited to walk through the tent city, chat with the creators, read stories and experience the beauty of the installation. Trophy is an ongoing project that started in 2014. Since then, it’s been presented in Ottawa, St. Catherines, Dublin, and Toronto. Each version of Trophy is unique. From the different storytellers to the ever-changing installation, Trophy evolves and is shaped by the space it's in, and the community members it features.
