FringeArts - WeftWorks - Mistress of the Maze

A thousand years before the Greeks wove the tale of the Labyrinth and the Minotaur, Ariadne was Mistress of the Maze. Some archeologists have speculated that the Minoans of ancient Crete had a truly matriarchal society. Mistress of the Maze explores the rituals depicted in Minoan frescos, sculptures, and seals and the principle of female power embodied therein. The piece features dancers in contemporary, stylized masks and costumes based on Minoan iconography like the sacred bull, the Minoan genii, and the Mistress of Animals.
