The lifecycle of the Atlantic Salmon


“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.
