Winter_Pride_2014_logo.5.1Baby, it’s cold outside… Get ready for Winter Pride UK on 8 February 2014!

Hidden in an underground maze of Victorian warehouse vaults in east London lies a winter paradise. Step over the cobblestones of London’s Tobacco Docks, and be transported back in time to a forbidden Victorian marketplace and funfair, full of tattoos, fire, art and music for one night only.

TRANSITION COLLECTIVE have been invited to participate in London’s first ever Winter Pride! The TC artists will create a large scale installation at the heart of this awe inspiring venue, explore an affront to Narnia.The flipside of a contained delusion of dubious intent. The roles we play with each and every day, the grey area between fiction and reality. The elements, colours, shapes and sounds we choose to heighten and express our inner child, our inner goddess, our inner king, our inner queen, our inner beast. The fantasy made real, to the max. Who are you? Why do you do what you do? How are you writing the story of your life? What are the mythologies from your past that shape you today, what do you bury, what do you honour, what do you warp into wondrous disguises? What twists and turns you underground, overground, through secret passages and ejector seats. One door closes another opens. Mirror mirror on the wall…
