About the Show

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. This solo show is what they brought back.

Provocative, Intense, Educational, Thought-provoking, Creative

See it if you are intrigued by the idea of a strong, Black woman describing her personal quest for identity. Interesting use of physical metaphor.

Don't see it if you have overdosed on one person shows with video backdrops and intense social messaging.

Indulgent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if Rochelle Rose's powerhouse performance keeps one enthralled in Thompson's flawed yet forceful mono-drama Sledgehammer centerpiece a stunner

Don't see it if Yes, the political is personal but Thompson fails to provide enough connecting links in this slavery saga The rage is potent but exhausting

Timely & sad but it lacks resonance, 95 mins -- not 75 mins.!, Ending feels forced, Script needs lots of work, Solo show about black rage

See it if you're a person of color (85% were white on Jan. 10); you'd like to understand the corrosive effects of racism; you've faced discrimination

Don't see it if you expect a polished script; you favor light-hearted entertainment; you hate wearing safety goggles during a performance Read more

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Intense, Dizzying

See it if you enjoy one person shows that share a personal journey. Some words are resonant, some are lacking, though R. Rose really lives the story.

Don't see it if you expect a straight forward narrative, many things are implied or not fully explained. Also, there are safety goggles and a sledgehammer.

Must see, Clever, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see an unusual, exciting, striking and eviscerating experience about the Black experience internationally

Don't see it if I'd recommend seeing this! It's striking, important, and work with humor, guts, and a lot of thought.

"Selina Thompson's 'salt.' Is Both A Release Of Rage And A Healing Ritual"

Score: 98%. "'salt.' is a poetic epitaph for those who have nothing concrete to grieve. It is a hymn of anger and of healing, of loss and empathy, of hope. I recommend that all attend, as you will find enlightenment, teachings, and possibly healings from Selina Thompson's story."
