Shadow Girl is out and proud because there are no expectations and the costumes are so liberating and unifying,”

Tamsin Drury

Shadow Girl — The City Streets follows a young woman who finds herself isolated and afraid. In a bid to find security she disappears into the shadows.

Hiding away, can she find the strength to help others, and help herself?

Shadow Girl – The City Streets explores disability, isolation & visibility and takes place in public places.
