Monsters are always out of luck. Everyone runs away from them fearfully or fearlessly tries to defeat them. Monsters always have to hide. In a closet, under a bed, in a cave or in the middle of a maze. This summer the Minotaur is back. But this time in his own knitted labyrinth of 12 meters in diameter, handmade by a large group of knitting and crocheting women from all over the country. Children go on a journey of discovery along theatrical scenes, exciting wanderings and playful spaces. This unforgettably soft and exciting labyrinth, humorous lyrics, theatrical music and interaction gives a new look at the concept of monster.

King Minos, the king of Crete, by a broken promise to the god Poseidon has a half man half bull as a son: the mythical monster Minotaur. He locks it up in a labyrinth in which seven girls and seven boys are released every year. With the help of Ariadne, the king's daughter, the hero Theseus defeats the monster. Together with Ariadne, the young visitors enter the hand-knitted labyrinth to defeat the Minotaur. But what makes a monster a monster? Studio Brei wonders whether monsters, scary as they seem, aren't really just creatures that need softness, warmth and love.
Next to the labyrinth, a special research center has been set up in which children can research monsters, how the labyrinth was created and the time in which the myth originated.
