Musical Experimental

What could cause a creature as fearsome as a giant to remove his own heart from his body? What becomes of him without his Heart? And what becomes of his Heart without him?

These questions inspire Impossible Salt’s beautiful and haunting exploration of this ancient tale, known as “The Troll With No Heart in His Body” in Norway, “Koschei the Immortal” in Russia, “Punchkin the Magician” in India, and by still other names in Scotland, Hungary, and elsewhere. 
Even (or perhaps especially) in the United States in 2018, the specter of a monster made invulnerable by his own unthinkable actions continues to captivate us, and demands our attention.

Revived for the Halloween season, HEARTLESS is Impossible Salt’s deepest dive yet into the fear, desperation, and violence that dwell—where else?—in the human heart.

Join us after every performance of HEARTLESS for refreshments, music, and conversation.
