10 Soldiers | Rosie Kay Dance Company.  The body is the frontline.  Premieres Birmingham 21 May 2019

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

It is presented in association with the Birmingham Hippodrome and The British Army.  The show is a new large-scale re-working of our five-star show 5 SOLDIER as 10 SOLDIERS.  The British Army is proud of the staging and the fact that a former soldier is also performing

In 2008, choreographer Rosie Kay joined the 4th Battalion The Rifles, to watch and participate in full battle exercises. She also visited the National Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. What came of these observations was the award-winning, five-star work 5 SOLDIERS.

Ten years on, Rosie Kay expands the work for the large stage with 10 Soldiers. Now a full Army squad, 10 Soldiers takes a fresh look at life in 2019’s British Army including issues of equality and diversity.

The world premiere is to take place in Birmingham at the Birmingham Hippodrome 21 May 2019

Edinburgh Festival Theatre 30 May 2019

Norwich Theatre Royal 4 June 2019

The body is the frontline

Will you go and see this show?  A former soldier is among the cast.  He learned dance as a boy but chose to join the army as a career.  Eventually his itchy feet walked him back to dancing!
