"In Loaded, we explore the theme using 50 sandbags (weighing 7kg each). Just as a sandbag is designed to take an impact, or to save us from impact, the human question for us in this show is: can we absorb the impact and bounce back? What makes it possible to bear the burden we face, or even redefine it in order to lighten the load?"
Rushe adds that the dance show is not doom and gloom: "In spite of its heavy theme, Loaded is full of lightness and humour. It is a physically demanding dance show performed by actors, rather than dancers and the ensemble's tremendous vulnerability and fallibility make the work captivating and accessible to all."
