Witness stories of life-changing moments of transformation in this pop up living installation at Fleming Park, built around stories by people from our community.  Audience members move through at their own pace from tent to tent listening to stories that capture turning points in our lives.  The light-filled tents become temporary beacons to a world in changing times, before they vanish off into the night. Drop in anytime during performance times.

Public Energy Performing Arts recognizes the particular social and economic context of Peterborough/Nogojiwanong, and through its presentation of Trophy aims to build understanding and openness by sharing a wide range of personal lived experiences of all people within our communities. This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome. We invite you to join us.
