      EVENT DETAILS
      'Common Salt' at Yeovil Library, Somerset

      Common Salt Sheila Ghelani and Sue Palmer 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 trade, race and culture. 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 global power, artefact and trade, race and memory is hidden in plain sight. “Common Salt … was exquisite … A miniature with epic undertones.” "Intruiging and mesmerising" "Like reading a book in 3D real life" Audience Feedback Supported using public funds by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
