War, What is it Good For?

War, What is it Good For?

10 Soldiers is coming to the Hippodrome

The Armed Forces and dance may seem to go together like chalk and a particularly chalky cheese, but in an exploration of war’s effect on the human body, acclaimed choreographer Rosie Kay brought the battle to the small stage in Brum-born 5 Soldiers. A decade later, a bigger, updated version, 10 Soldiers, does a victory march into the main auditorium of the Hippodrome. Intense, athletic dance theatre is what you should expect in a show that deals with the demands on soldiers' physical and psychological well-being for an incredibly affecting experience. On May 21, tickets are from £15. Or be one of the 120-strong  volunteer army who'll put on a pre-performance to mark the 120th anniversary of the Hippodrome, and your seat is free. More
