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.

Peer Gynt at Norway House!

Expanding upon the piece we created in April for the Mesabi Symphony Orchestra, Impossible Salt brings Peer Gynt to Norway House this summer. Inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s nearly-unstageable, 7-hour dreamscape of a philosophical play (in verse!), the troupe will dive into a world of laziness and lies, trolls and sailing ships, voices in the dark and women who wait. Peer Gynt asks us: what does it mean to be Myself in a world full of Selves? (Don’t worry, we’ll have that question answered in about an hour.)

Featuring ensemble members Sean Hansberry, Gaia Mencagli, Amber Lee Olivier, and Stephanie Ruas, with direction by Emilia Seay Allen and music by Erik Ostrom. Rounding out the team, Ashley Burdash will design, Kenji Shoemaker will stage manage, and Gregory Parks will produce.
