Our Common Salt cine-poem made by artist Lucy Cash, was also on display from the 8th – 16th September at b-side Festival
A performance around a table - a show and tell - exploring 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.
Described recently by audience members as 'mesmerising', 'ingenious', 'spellbinding' and 'like reading a book in 3D real life!', we lay 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.
Supported using public funds by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Developed with support from b-side and One Final Act by Rajni Shah Projects.
