About the Production
A powerful exploration of the changing face of Syracuse through an interview-based theatre work,Tales from the Salt City presents the first-hand narratives of seven citizens of Syracuse – both recent arrivals and long-standing citizens. Tales from the Salt City examines the history of Syracuse, beginning with Indigenous peoples, as a center of abolitionism and the Underground Railroad, to its history as an industrial steel-centre, and recent location as a sanctuary city for refugees.
