Vancouver, BC

Directions: We are located next to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on the corner of Georgia and Hamilton.



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral washrooms.


Walk through a pop-up city of stories. Comprised of a cluster of tents, Trophy lights up šxʷƛ̓exən Xwtl’a7shn (formerly QET Plaza). 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 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. Between performances, audience members can wander through the installation.

“★★★★ It’s entertaining, insightful and you can expect to come away feeling acutely reminded of our shared humanity.”
