Presented by Fiona Oliver-Larkin
Trapped in a place where the only food is salt and the only companions to be found are those she conjures from the objects around her, she plays. Terrible rumblings can be heard above: of monsters; or something worse?…
In moments of crisis and absolute fear, everything stands still and doors can open to other worlds. A new, visually poetic one woman show, SALT is a magical-realist fairytale for adults. This piece pays homage to the resilience and the remarkable tools – both physical and psychological – that human beings have for survival, even in the bleakest of places.
Supported by Creative Scotland and Surge Scotland.

About the company
Fiona is an Edinburgh based physical theatre-maker, puppeteer, circus performer and teacher.
She wants to see a more fair, equal, joyful and honest world- a post-patriarchal world. That
desire contributes to every piece of work that she makes. The stories that we tell are integral to
how we view the world (Monbiot, 2017). Fiona’s work is actively engaged in the search for these
stories. Co-director of Edinburgh based physical theatre and circus company, Voice Box
Theatre and one half of feminist theatre duo SALTYDOLLS, she obtained a diploma in physical
theatre practice in 2016. Her training in anthropology and sociology (Goldsmiths, BA hons, 1st
class) has had a lasting influence on her work
