Salt - a fairy tale


In various cultures there are fairy tales and myths about salt, mostly combined
with the hard experience of lacking salt. In this production, we reveal the importance of salt for man of all ages, embedded into a tale from the brothers Grimm (Die Gänsehirtin am Brunnen). This tale tells of an exile from the parents' house through which
the protagonist receives help from other adults whom she can relate to.

Olga explains in between where salt is found and who it can be gained.

We use shadow to tell the story to leave as much space for association and fantasy
as possible. But we show as well real salt - sea and stone salt - and the children can taste it afterwards.
