Scribbled Thought and Out of Inc. presents


Directed by Sinéad Rushe

Choreographed by Vicki Manderson and Neil Bettles

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) joins forces with choreographer Vicki Manderson (National Theatre of Scotland and Frantic Assembly) to create a startling new show about the mechanics of weight and what happens when we face the limits of our strength.


Violent, lyrical and funny, Loaded combines an evocative original sound score with texts ranging from ancient literature to modern scirence. 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.


Loaded is supported by the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, London

Loaded was taken back into research and development in July 2015 supported by Arts Council England. We played with new ideas and redeveloped old ones. Here are some images from our period of play.
