Loaded takes advantage of the confined space of the Ford’s loading dock to evoke themes of borders and space. As society contemplates the implications of erecting walls – both physical and psychological – Loaded explores how borders manifest in physical space, who is allowed inside and who is not, how control is confronted and how dreams of freedom are realized.

Through its arresting site-specific practice, HDD inspires audiences to think differently about their assumptions of borders and “the other,” becoming more accepting of those who come from different places in our society.

This work features HDD dancers Raymond Ejiofor, Lenin Fernandez, Micaela Taylor and Himerria Wortham, with live music by Justin Scheid & Sarah Belle Reid and lighting design by Christine Ferriter.
