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.
