Salar: The Story of the Salmon



The Hatch
Benn Ross, Alexis Milligan, Kersti Tacreiter, Cathy Porter, Mary Louise Bernard

“Salar” is a performance about life, connection, and the environment.

This 50-minute transformative theatre experience tells a 25,000 year old story centred around the life cycle of the Atlantic Salmon. Designed for the whole family, this company weaves together stories, myths and science through language, movement, live music and puppetry. As a NewWork, The Hatch debuted Salar at PuppetWorks and will tour Parks Canada locations in easten Canada, sharing this delightful experience.

We acknowledge the support of
the Canada Council for the Arts.

“Salar embodies the intricacy, vitality and mystery of the lives  of the Atlantic Salmon ”

"This visceral and compelling performance gave me a deeper feeling of connection to these incredible creatures. It is unlike anything I have experienced in my conservation work".
-Sarah Penney, Salmon Recovery Coordinator, CBHNP
