Princess and Princess in London

We all know the plot to the classic fairytale – Prince is charming and dissatisfied. Princess is lonely and distressed. Prince finds princess, thrills her with his witty banter/full head of hair, and they live happily ever after.
I was never quite sure why that storyline didn’t resonate with me. Maybe I was just waiting for a different kind of fairytale like the one written by Amie Taylor as part of small STORY / BIG City 2015. For this exciting series Rich Mix will be supporting emerging artists and companies while they tell their stories of city life.

“Sometimes I pretend I’m a princess in this city. Lost.
I’m looking for another princess, but they’re hard to come by. Or at least, I think they are. I haven’t come across many in this city. Doesn’t feel like I have. Maybe I’m the only one.”
In a scaling city, it’s easy to lose oneself in the folds of the river, or the shadows of the buildings – you can walk in time with a stranger and no one will notice any difference between you at all. In this city there is a princess, searching for another princess – but there are numerous hurdles and dangerous challenges to face if she wants her heart’s desire. An urban coming-of-age fairytale, the unearthing of oneself and ones true feelings as this princess searches for her first true love.
