Wise One follows a young woman seeking welcome on the darkest night of the year, inspired by the Norwegian folk tale "The Seventh Father of the House." Impossible Salt's wild, inimitable style blends drama with beloved folk songs sung in their original language, as well as new music composed for the production by Minneapolis Music Company artistic director, Mischa Santora. This original work was created for the American Swedish Institute's 2017 holiday season, FEST! Merry Mansion.
