5 Soldiers – Rosie Kay Dance Company

Rosie Kay Dance Company

OFFSITE: YEOMANRY HOUSE

5 SOLDIERS: The Body is the Frontline Thursday 7 – Saturday 9 September Tickets: £20 (£15 concessions: along with regular concessions, also available for members of the Armed Forces)

In 2008, Birmingham based 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 an award-winning, five-star work, performed offsite at Yeomanry House, Bloomsbury.

5 SOLDIERS offers no moral stance on war. Instead, through Kay’s trademark intense physical and athletic dance theatre, it 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.

5 SOLDIERS: The Body is the Frontline is part of Sadler’s Wells’ regular programme of performances offsite
