Trophy is a performance and art installation of 15 hand-crafted tents that asks: how have you changed? Inside each tent is a local community member telling the true story of a turning point in their life. During the performance, audiences circulate through the tents, listening to stories and transforming the tents into colourful structures.

Trophy is presented by About Us!, a biannual intercultural program of artistic projects and socio-cultural activities that demonstrates the diversity of Zürich and invites you to discover your city and its inhabitants in a new way.



If you have a story of a moment in your life when something changed, we want to hear it! Big, small, funny or heartbreaking – all stories are welcome. We’re looking to celebrate community, and share and represent stories from all cultures and experiences.

  • Are there moments in your life when everything changed?

  • Did a chance encounter change your life forever?

  • Have you risked failure to achieve something important?

Love, loss, health scares, career and family challenges and successes – there are no stories too big or too small! Join us and have your story heard. We encourage submissions from diverse people of all languages and backgrounds.


  • If you are interested, contact Marisa at by June 30, 2021.
  • Send us a short description of your story, a little bit about yourself, the language(s) in which you would like to tell your story, and anything else you would like us to know about you.
  • Performance date: Sept 3, 2021
  • Stories should be 4 minutes long. We will work with you to help shape and rehearse your story. We will pay you a small fee.
