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 was the award-winning, five-star work 5 SOLDIERS. This work offers no moral stance on war. Instead it 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. “An extraordinary exploration of modern war as a physical experience.” The Independent

Rosie Kay was choreographer of the Commonwealth Games Handover Ceremony and the hit film Sunshine on Leith. Her trademark style of intense physical and athletic dance theatre aims to thrill and move.

★★★★★ “An extraordinary exploration of modern war as a physical experience.” The Independent
★★★★★ "War from a female perspective packs a punch…taut, visceral, compassionate” The Observer
★★★★★ “... not only keeps us riveted, but helps close the gap of understanding between the armed forces and the general public.” The Scotsman
