5 Soldiers

Five Soldiers - Rosie Kay Dance Company 02
Colin Hattersley Photography 'Five Soldiers' by the Rosie Kay Dance Company

This dance piece will be performed in the appropriately military setting of a bombed out church, opposite Woolwich Barracks. '5 Soldiers' is Rosie Kay's exploration of the impact of warfare on the body, based on a period of research Kay undertook out on training manouevres with 4th Battalion The Rifles. It's a hard-hitting work that sees the physical realities of conflict from the point of view of five soldiers – the boredom, the endurance, the exhaustion and the adrenaline.

'5 Soldiers' is being performed in a special outdoor version as part of Greenwich and Docklands International Festival 2017.
