Who will experience Asterion?

Deciding who should be given a chance to experience Asterion has been a difficult but rewarding process. With the individual nature of the journey and only two days of performance, we can accommodate far fewer people than this labyrinth and the amount of work that has been put into it demands.

Reading some of the eloquent requests we have received reinforces that people are still passionate about art that pushes the boundaries of expectation – here are just a few of our favourite thoughts from our future-neophytes:

“I have, for many years, sought to discover new ways in which old texts can be
brought to new life; where are the points of contact, the resonances, between
materials that were crafted centuries ago and the experience of 21st century

“I’m ready for some inspiration of the magnitude that I know this will lead me
toward.  I’m at a crossroads and know that this experience will aid me in my

“Jerrard and Diana Smith have created some of the most breath-taking design for
performance in Canada.  They have a large vision that has always been about
sustainability – whether for the performances in Banff, the Netherlands, Union
Station or the Haliburton County Forest Reserve for the Patria Cycle.  Some of
these we have attended and the powerful effect of these productions has stayed
with us.  Asterion we have followed on the website since its inception.  This
work is about collaborating with the growing cycles in Ontario and thinking
through mythologies – the installation of this labyrinth has taken time. What is added to the landscape echoes the power of nature – the Wolf and other such figures.  The scale of this work is unprecedented in Canada. Anyone who participates going through Asterion is invited to an immediate human-scaled experience that I imagine allows for a reflection/mediation on monumental time – simultaneously a
solitary and communal experience. ”
