Walk through a pop-up city of stories. Comprised of a cluster of tents, Trophy lights up Barnardo Square. 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 day passes, the tents transform into multi-coloured 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.

In this special-to-Fringe presentation, STO Union and Change of Address join forces to give a local voice to a powerful Canadian concept. Canadian multi-disciplinary company STO Union create shows, videos, live art and installations. Change of Address is a collective of Ireland-based artists, people in direct provision and their allies.
