Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's SUTRA

Toronto Premiere
With monks from the Shaolin Temple

“Sutra,” the award-winning collaboration between 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 of faith behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with kung fu within a dance context.

With Gormley’s striking design of 21 wooden boxes and the music of Polish composer Szymon Brzóska’s performed live, “Sutra” is an incomparable work that has captured hearts and imaginations around the world as one of the stage’s most sophisticated works of art.

Since its sold-out debut at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London in May 2008, more than 200,000 people worldwide in 71 cities across 35 countries have seen “Sutra.”

“This Sadler’s Wells production exceeds even our highest expectations,” The Times (UK) 
“Mesmerising and magical,” Evening Standard (UK)
“Impossible to resist…astounding,” Le Monde (France)
