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. Since then her creation 5 Soldiers has toured internationally and has now been expanded to a larger version 10 Soldiers.
This is dance at its most ‘real’ – created through deep immersion into the challenges and demands of army life. Watch and hear Rosie discuss the work with Col Dame Kelly Holmes, Double Olympic champion and Honorary Colonel of the Royal Armoured Corps.
