10 Soldiers premiere: 21 May, Birmingham Hippodrome

As a decade long project that has pioneered creating dance about soldiers' lives, we are expanding 5 SOLDIERS into 10 SOLDIERS, a new large-scale work commissioned by Birmingham Hippodrome.

The new piece looks at life in 2019’s British Army and uses the bigger cast to dig more deeply including issues of equality and diversity, also looking at the different roles women play in the Armed Forces and their relationships with each other.
