“Salar” is an environmental theatre performance about the Atlantic Salmon that inspires a greater awareness of the salmon’s life cycle.  This 50-minute interdisciplinary performance weaves together stories, myths and science through language, movement, live music and puppetry. 

By employing methods in knowledge translation and exchange, this transformative experience fosters a greater understanding of this fascinating creature’s importance to peoples across the northern hemisphere over the last 25 000 years and highlights the connection between ocean and forest, and our shared human responsibility to the environment.

This show was inspired by the Atlantic Parks Salmon Recovery Project currently underway in five Atlantic region National Parks to protect and restore at-risk Atlantic Salmon populations. The project is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, under a Concept to Realization grant, and supported by Parks Canada.
