Impossible Salt tells stories to make us thirst for the truth behind the fantastical. This ensemble of musical storytellers creates original work inspired by folk and fairy 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.

The Thorp Building, Central Avenue NE
August 2 - 12, 2018

Impossible Salt brings our wild stylings to MN's largest theatre festival this summer!

Turns out the ancient Egyptians mostly got it right, so watch out for crocodiles and be sure to pet the cat—reverentially—on your way to eternal rest.
