Show Information

A thrilling and humane portrait of army life, telling the stories of men and women serving on the front line.

Following a period spent watching and participating in battle exercises with the 4th Battalion The Rifles and visiting the National Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, choreographer Rosie Kay created the award-winning, five-star 5 Soldiers. The work allows soldiers to be seen as humans, showing the sheer physical work involved, and touching audiences with a deep understanding of the life of a soldier. The cast includes a current serving Trooper of the Welsh Cavalry, 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards, who is also a professional dancer.
