K2CO AUDTION NOTICE

Rosie Kay’s 5 SOLDIERS – The Body is The Frontline

 

Rosie Kay is looking for male and female performers aged between 20 and 40 for a tour of 5 SOLDIERS 2023.

5 SOLDIERS is the award-wining show, created by Rosie Kay which has toured the world since 2010. A thrilling and humane portrait of army life telling the stories of four men and one woman serving off and on the front line. Highlighting the preparation for war, the personality traits of the soldiers, the off-duty camaraderie, boredom, high-jinx and horseplay, as well as the deeply important and at times contradictory role of women in the Armed Forces, 5 SOLDIERS received praise from serving soldiers, veterans, peace activists, critics and civilians alike.

Deeply realistic, stark, bold, and thrilling, 5 SOLDIERS questions what it is that we ask of professional soldiers and explores how the human body remains essential to war in the 21st century. 5 SOLDIERS has toured the UK, Europe and the USA since 2010.

“War from a female perspective packs a punch…taut, visceral, compassionate” ★★★★★ The Observer

★★★★★ The Herald & The Scotsman
