WATCH ROSIE KAY'S WORK
The Body is the Frontline
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.” (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, you can see the 2017 live stream (commissioned by The Space) for a limited time for free.
WATCH ONLINE FOR FREE
For a limited time we are making 5 SOLDIERS available for free for online viewers. Please make a donation to Rosie Kay Dance Company if you can. Your donation will help fund the research, creation and touring of new works.
“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.”

Well, not the most exciting birthday but not too bothered! Managed to scavenge oysters and champagne. Back to porridge and water tomorrow. For one night, I’m going to celebrate being home, being safe, and being ok health-wise (too complicated to list on twitter!). Much love xxx https://t.co/9FvmN2xBNi
Most of our road came out tonight and clapped in the street, me in my socks, kids in pj’s, cars beeping as they went past. Huge, huge respect and thanks to all the incredible people who work, nay, serve our country and our people at the #NHS Thank you for everything you do.
