CFN CEO to be Storyteller at One-of-a-Kind Trophy Installation

CFN CEO Anila Lee Yuen will be telling her story at Trophy, an art installation unlike any other, running from January 17th through the 19th. Trophy is a part of YYC's One Yellow Rabbit's High Performance Rodeo, Calgary’s International Festival of the Arts that runs across the city from January 3rd through the 28th. The largest festival of its kind in Western Canada features theatre, music, dance and more.  Produced by the now legendary One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre and presented in co-operation with many of Calgary’s major arts organizations such as Theatre Junction, Vertigo Theatre, Theatre Calgary, Alberta Theatre Projects and Lunchbox Theatre, the High Performance Rodeo has established itself as one of our city's major cultural events.

Trophy is a unique one-of-kind living exhibit the likes of which presents the interminable nature of the human experience. A living installation built around stories of transformation, audience members move through a pop-up Tent City of Stories, which contains 1 to 100 tents, and brings a public space to life. Inside each tent is a person telling the true story of a turning point in their life. Tents will run from the Calgary Municipal Building through the Plus-15s and into Arts Commons. Best of all, it's free, all ages and wheel chair accessible.

Comprised of illuminated architectural tents, Trophy lights up the city and the installation's evolution is determined by your actions. Trophy is a living monument to myriad of experiences that make up our lives, and a compelling conversation about how we all experience change. Growth is painful, change us beautiful and Shakespeare was correct indeed - as all the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.
