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
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.
