BEST CHOREOGRAPHY (MODERN)
NOMINATED: CRITICS’ CIRCLE NATIONAL DANCE AWARDS
A thrilling and humane portrait of army life telling the stories of five 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 Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre for our Armed Forces. What came of these observations is this award-winning, five-star work, performed live in an Army drill hall.
“Powerful, thought-provoking” (The Scotsman), 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.
Following 5 SOLDIERS 2017 sell-out success in Edinburgh and a national tour we’re heading to the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP) conference in New York in January.
We’ll present showcase performances at the Alvin Ailey Studios to promoters interested in booking the show for a tour in Spring 2019.
