PERFORMANCES: AUGUST 10 & 11, 2013

NOTE: ASTERION IS SOLD OUT. WE HOPE THOSE WHO ARE DISAPPOINTED THIS YEAR WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE ASTERION IN THE FUTURE

Information for those who will be attending the Asterion experience.

You will have now received your designated time slot and we hope you have replied to confirm your attendance. Please try to arrive at least twenty minutes early as we will be making every effort to stay on schedule.

The journey will last just under two hours and is of course designed for one person at a time. The forest terrain is at times a bit difficult, so please wear sturdy shoes or boots. There are some stairs to navigate and many of the spaces are very dark. We don't wish to give anything away but we do want you to be prepared. You will be asked to sign a waiver upon entering, indicating that you understand and accept the risks involved.

Having said that, we will do everything we can to make your journey enjoyable and rewarding. Please be sure to bring sun block and bug spray. We ask that you leave all phones, cameras etc. with our front of house staff for safe keeping.

If you have any questions, please contact us:

Asterion is a multidisciplinary research exploring the relationship between the scenographic environment and the participating audience member in the context of site specific theatre. The project involves the participation of artists from a variety of disciplines to interact in the development of a series of performance environments in the form of a labyrinth. 
The project, located on a rural property in Ontario Canada has been in development from 2004.
