Sadler’s Wells Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Antony Gormley with monks from the Shaolin Temple, April 3-April 6th

One of Sadler’s Wells’ most exhilarating productions, Sutra, returns to Sadler’s Wells on its fifth anniversary after touring around the globe to sell-out audiences.

“Exceeds even our highest expectations”  THE TIMES

***** “This unique, profoundly imagined show takes the concept of cultural exchange to a whole new level”   THE GUARDIAN

From Sadler’s Wells.   “Seen by over 160,000 people worldwide in 55 cities across 27 countries, this critically acclaimed collaboration between choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Turner Prize-winning sculptor Antony Gormley and 17 Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China is a breathtaking spectacle of athleticism, exploring the philosophy and faith behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with kung fu within a contemporary context.

With Antony Gormley’s striking set of 21 wooden boxes and Polish composer Szymon Brzóska’s specially commissioned score performed live, Sutra is an incomparable work that has captured the hearts and imaginations of people the world over, as one of the stage’s most sophisticated productions and a true work of art.”
