As May winds to a close so do many of our initial projects.
We’ll all be missing the antics of Max, Craig, Gabe, and John, but they did leave us a little something to remember them by.
Reinhard Reitzenstein also completed his installation and left us, taking his wonderful stories and all the good wine with him:
You only get a peek . . .
However, June is shaping up to be a fabulous month.
We’re happy to welcome back our technical wizard and University of Guelph Theatre Technical Director Chris Clifford, a veteran of many Patria projects.
As well as Leo Hartery, technical protégé extraordinaire.
As we begin to realize this unique production, the ways to get involved are expanding. Sign up for a workshop, audition or volunteer with us.

We’re thrilled to welcome world-renowned visual artist Reinhard Reitzenstein to the Asterion camp. A native of Uelzen, Germany, Reitzenstein has completed installations at The Confederation Centre for the Arts, The Nickel Arts Museum, The London Regional Art Gallery, Rideau Hall, Toronto’s Harbourfront and Guelph’s own Donald Forster Sculpture Garden and Macdonald Stewart Art Centre, to name but a few. Currently the director of SUNY Buffalo’s Sculpture Program, Reitzenstein experiments with a wide variety of mediums and materials, including wood, glass, metals, video, music, sculpture and photography.
We’re not too upset about the wine and cigars he brought either.
Reitzenstein will be completing an installation in the museum section of the Asterion Labyrinth. For more information visit his website: http://www.reinhardreitzenstein.com/portfolios.html
We’re equally excited to have Danny Wild as our resident chef. Wild is a triple threat, as he not only cooks, but also dances and performs – seems like he’ll be right at home around here . . .
