Impossible Salt Presents: The Stranger says

Once upon a time, before darkness and cold could be dispelled with the flick of a switch, Yuletide meant more than the promise that light and warmth would soon return. As the creatures of cold and shadow prowl ever closer, a mysterious stranger emerges from the forest, speaking in an unfamiliar tongue. Can this frightening vagrant possibly protect us from ferocious trolls, from the wrath of the unhappy nisse, and even from the dreaded joláköttin?

Through the original work, The Stranger, Minneapolis-based theatre ensemble Impossible Salt weaves interactive storytelling with song and music to stir your soul to bring Nordic myths legends and fairytales to life in a way you’ve never seen before.


This 40 minute roaming performance begins in the Turnblad Mansion Ballroom and meanders through all six Nordic Christmas Rooms.

Please note this show requires the audience to stand and move although accessible seating is available.
