PEGGY tells the story of transformation and dreams. Peggy used to be a horse that, whenever she ran, she dreamed of flying. Deep inside she always knew she was a Pegasus!
PEGGY is a mobile art piece, generally showing up unannounced in open public spaces.
We all need more spontaneous moments of joy in life, and Peggy loves to bring it

Mike Stokka-Troxel’s artistic vision is to create collective, collaborative artistic creations and bring them to where people are. The entire process “is the art”, from gathering the right people, creating something, and sharing it together. The side effect is something visible that everyone else can enjoy.
PEGGY has come to life inside the scenography workshop at Kilden Performing Arts Centre where Troxel is also the manager. The team is daily making real the artistic visions of directors and scenographers, bringing the magic of theatre to life. Kilden also makes room for the team to dream up their own artistic visions and to bring this magic outside the walls of the theatre.
