Gravity shapes us. From birth to death, what bodies can do is bound by what they weigh. Things fall, softly or heavily, constantly or all at once. Some things are too heavy to carry, or to lift. Some things carry us. Sinéad Rushe, director of the Olivier-nominated Out of Time with Colin Dunne (The Pit, Barbican, Baryshnikov Arts Centre, New York) directs a startling new show about the mechanics of weight and what happens when we face the limits of our strength. Violent, lyrical and thought provoking, Loaded combines an evocative original sound score with texts ranging from ancient literature to modern science. Its performers use everything from sandbags to ballast and from pulleys to planks, to explore how bodies and structures learn to bear loads – or fall apart. "Theatre at its innovative, exuberant best." The Independent ‘"Exquisite, ironic and sharply engaging theatre... a bold and intelligent delight." The Evening Standard
