Asterions Hus has toured the Danish theatres, schools and culture houses, since its foundation in 2003, being with its fresh new form a very popular part of the theatres playing for a young audience in Denmark. Artistic director Peter Kirk has developed a very expressive theatre language – between the realistic and the grotesque, comedy and tragedy, text and extreme physicality.
In recent years Asterions Hus has ventured into more mature performances for adults and have extended to outdoor performances too.
Asterions Hus is touring exceedingly internationally – where they are ready to perform in English, German and French. Touring has so far been to: Norway, Holland, Germany, England, Scotland, Tyrkey, Cypern, Italy, Korea, Egypt & Canada. The company has the last year engaged in a large collaboration with independent Egyptian performers.
Asterions has its own space and laboratory on the harbor front of Copenhagen, where they contributed to the creation of a performing arts platform called Teaterøen. Teaterøen (or Theatre Island) is running a theatre with a café and foyer, 3 rehearsal rooms, a workshop and other facilities such as a shared office and a bunker.
