Le Nove Guerriere:
Following our successful performance of 'I Nove Guerriera' supporting the tour of Rosie Kay Dance Company's '5 SOLDIERS', FDT will bring together a group of local young female dancers to develop and recreate the piece as a site specific dance film. ‘Le Nove Guerriere’ is an exploration of the roles of women in war, as leaders, a collective, and as The Other. Inspired by the story of Bouddica and Colchester’s ancient history, the piece demonstrates the human relationships that are present in a company of warriors, regardless of the century."
