ASTREA

A mythical tale of hope 

Using circus, theater & colors as symbols,
Astrea is simultaneously a visual feast & an epic adventure

Inspired by the greek myth of Astrea, the show explores the human condition, the looming problems of our time & humanity’s potential through the lens of myth.  Full of meaning but without words, the story unfolds through a ceaseless chain of action packed events, never allowing even the youngest of publics to lose interest.  By blending ancient & modern, theater, dance, circus, martial arts & state of the art LED technology, Astrea tells an inspiring story;
it’s our story & each of us has a role to play.

THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE SHOW

By working together towards a common vision, humanity can overcome the challenges of our time to create a brighter future.

Through its lack of empathy & solidarity, humanity has jeopardized its environment to the point of catastrophe. Each of us faces an urgent choice: Do we live & act to please ourselves, without regard for others & the environment or, do we live with & act for the good of all?

From a utopian vision of the past, through the current crisis & on to a brighter future, Astrea explores this central moral problem in dramatic & visually stunning ways.

The show suggests that a leap of empathy, solidarity & collaboration is necessary if we are to become the custodians (& not the destroyers) of life on earth. The show goes further to marvel at the limitless potential of a united humanity & our destiny amongst the stars.

A WORD FROM ASTREA’S CREATOR SRIKANTA BAREFOOT

   Over the first 5 months of 2021, I worked ceaselessly to bring Astrea to life.  Given the current ecological crisis coupled with the covid-19 pandemic, it seems clear that humanity is at a crossroads & has an important choice to make; a choice which will have long-lasting & potentially devastating consequences.

I felt a sense of urgency to tell a story to inspire humanity towards a positive direction, & to convey the idea that the choice is each of ours; the power is in each of our hands.

Crafting a story without the use of words as well as broaching such a charged subject while keeping politics out of it, required a lot of reflection.  I had the additional goal of keeping the show action packed & visually stunning in every moment so that even the youngest viewer could enjoy the show.  By using a kind of color puzzle as a symbol, focusing on the human condition & celebrating the beauty this life & planet have to offer, the story of Astrea found its way.
