Celebrated Flemish/ Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkoaui, in collaboration with Turner Prize winning artist Antony Gormley, presents a brand new dance work inspired by the skill, strength and spirituality of Buddhist Shaolin monks. Polish composer Szymon Brzóska has created a beautiful brand new score for piano, percussion and strings which is played live. The 17 Monks performing in Sutra are directly from the original Shaolin Temple, situated near Dengfeng City in the Henan Province of China. In 1983 the State Council defined the Shaolin Temple as the key national Buddhist Temple. By visiting the Shaolin Temple, and working with the Shaolin Monks over several months, Sidi Larbi follows a lifelong interest of exploring the philosophy and faith behind the Shaolin tradition, its relationship with KungFu, and its position within a contemporary context.

Special features: interviews with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Antony Gormley & Szymon Brzoska.
