In 2008, choreographer Rosie Kay joined the 4th Battalion The Rifles, to watch and participate in full battle exercises, and visited the National Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. What came of these observations was the award-winning, five-star work 5 SOLDIERS.
Ten years on, Rosie Kay expands the work for the large stage with 10 Soldiers. Now a full Army squad, 10 Soldiers takes a fresh look at life in 2019’s British Army including issues of equality and diversity.
Charged with Kay’s trademark intense athletic dance theatre, 10 Soldiers explores how the human body - with both fragility and incredible inner strength - remains on the frontline of war.
