I was lucky enough to see the fantastic Sutra at Sadler’s Wells this past week. An inspiring collaboration between choreographer @sidilarbicherkaoui, 19 Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China and sculptor Antony Gormley, it is an inspiring magical piece.⠀

“This award-winning collaboration between choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, sculptor Antony Gormley and 19 Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China is one of Sadler’s Wells’ longest running and most exhilarating productions, now returning to London to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

With Antony Gormley’s striking set of 21 wooden boxes and Polish composer Szymon Brzóska’s specially commissioned score performed live, Sutra is a breath-taking spectacle of athleticism that explores the philosophy and faith behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with kung fu within a contemporary context.”
