Nathan Ellis’ The Disintegration Loops was selected from a number of submitted scripts following a call-out to young writers aged 18-25. The play was workshopped intensively over the course of just one week by an ensemble of actors, led by renowned director Iqbal Khan.
The play follows the story of Iff, a woman dizzied and powerless, living in freefall.
When a girl sets herself on fire in broad daylight and people can’t stop watching, Iff sees a chance to make life mean something. But as disaffection becomes fanaticism, her hope turns into something more violent and destructive. The boundary between creativity and sickness begins to blur…
A work-in-progress performance of The Disintegration Loops was performed at The North Wall on 16 & 17 September 2016.
