Sutra, the award-winning collaboration between choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, sculptor Antony Gormley and 19 Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China, is a breathtaking spectacle of athleticism which explores the philosophy and faith behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with kung fu within a dance context. With Antony Gormley’s striking set of 21 wooden boxes and Polish composer Szymon Brzóska’s music performed live, Sutra is an incomparable work that has captured hearts and imaginations the world over, as one of the stage’s most sophisticated works of art.
