In Feb 2016, two artists got on a cargo ship, and retraced one of the routes of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle – from the UK to Ghana to Jamaica, and back. Their memories, their questions and their grief took them along the bottom of the Atlantic and through the figurative realm of an imaginary past.

It was a long journey backwards, in order to go forwards. This show is what they brought back.

With the original stage show salt. performed as part of the British Council Showcase 2017, salt: dispersed is the premiere of artist Selina Thompson’s film adaptation of her award-winning show about grief, Black British identity and colonialism in a powerful and intimate screen experience.
