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 at the Yeomanry House, Bloomsbury.

Deeply realistic, stark and thrilling, 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, with Kay’s trademark intense physical and athletic dance theatre.

★★★★★ "War from a female perspective packs a punch"

Watch a live stream of 5 SOLDIERS: The Body is the Frontline on Friday 8 September from 7:45pm right here, and on our Facebook page.
