Impossible Salt tells stories to make all of us—audience & artists alike—thirst for the truth beneath the fantastical. This troupe of roving musical storytellers creates original work inspired by folk tales. 

Fairy tales aren't always about happily ever after. Sometimes, they're just sad and scary and strange. . . .There is singing,
but it doesn't feel like a musical. There's acting, but it doesn't feel like a play. There's dancing, but it doesn't feel like a
dance show. Instead, it feels like something ancient unfolding, something between a story and a dream.
