The Body is the Frontline
“An extraordinary exploration of modern war as a physical experience.” (The Independent), 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.
5 SOLDIERS has been touring since its premiere in 2010, in 2020 it opens in the UK before returning to the USA for the second time on its 10th anniversary tour.
2020 UK & US TOUR
“War from a female perspective packs a punch…taut, visceral, compassionate”
“not only keeps us riveted, but helps close the gap of understanding between the armed forces and the general public.”
