About this Event

Common Salt is a performance around a table – a ‘show and tell’. It explores the colonial, geographical history of England and India taking an expansive and emotional time-travel, from the first Enclosure Act and the start of the East India Company in the 1600s, to 21st century narratives of nature, empire and memory.

Sue and Sheila activate insights into our shared past, laying out a ‘home museum’ of objects and stories; of the Great Hedge of India, of borders, and collections – all accompanied by original Shruti box laments.

Common Salt is a reckoning; the interconnectedness between history and empire, nature and trade, race and memory is hidden in plain sight.

The performance is suitabe for ages 12+ and we are offering consessional rates for young people up to the age of 25. Please contact us directly to book if this applies to you, or for any further information. 07967 756320
