East meets West in this extraordinary collaboration between choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, sculptor Antony Gormley and 19 Shaolin monks from the Shaolin Temple in China.

Running from: Mon 26 - Wed 28 Mar.

This award-winning collaboration between choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, sculptor Antony Gormley and 19 Buddhist monks 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.
