A powerful and intimate film adaptation of Selina Thompson’s award-winning show about grief and Black British identity.

In February 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.

A journey to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

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.

The original stage show salt. was performed as part of the British Council Showcase 2017. salt: dispersed is 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.

Capacity for this film screen is limited, please book a ticket in advance.
