Performed by 17 monks from the original Shaolin Temple in China, along with celebrated choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Sutra is a fascinating exploration of the philosophy and faith behind the Shaolin tradition, its relationship with Kung-Fu, and its position within a contemporary context.

Turner Prize-winning artist Antony Gormley has created a striking design of 21 wooden boxes that shift and evolve in an ever-changing environment, while composer Szymon Brzoska’s beautiful score for piano, percussion and strings is played live by on-stage musicians.
