A thrilling and humane portrait of army life telling the stories of 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 National Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. What came of these observations was the award-winning, five-star work 5 SOLDIERS.
“An extraordinary exploration of modern war as a physical experience.”
5 SOLDIERS offers no moral stance on war. Instead 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.
Age Guidance 12+ Parental guidance advised, contains some scenes of violence.
