5 Soldiers is a dance sequence, choreographed and managed by Rosie Kay. This work is a narrative of the social structure, inter-relationships and environment, soldiers have lived in since the beginning of modern Army formations.
The 1 hour 20 minute piece, tells the story of 5 Soldiers, who socialise together, deploy and suffer loss together. There is fun humour, solitude, anger, flirtation, fear, pain and despair shown throughout the piece, superbly blended into a soundtrack of military sounds, marching commands and battle cries.
