Summary

A thrilling and humane portrait of army life, telling the stories of five men and women serving on the front line.

In 2008, choreographer Rosie Kay joined the 4th Battalion, The Rifles, to watch and participate in full battle exercises, and visited the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre for our Armed Forces. What came of these observations is this award-winning, five star work, performed live in an Army drill hall.

5 Soldiers offers no moral stance on war, but instead questions what it is that we ask of our soldiers and explores how the human body remains essential to war, even in the 21st Century.

“A disturbing, illuminating and necessary glimpse into a world that we mostly prefer to ignore.” – The Guardian

There will be a post-show discussion with local military representation after every performance.

The Friday performance will be preceded by a short dance work made by community members in response to 5 Soldiers.
