A breathtaking spectacle of athleticism, which explores the philosophy of faith behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with kung fu within a dance context.

A cast of 19 Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China performs breathtaking sequences to live music, deploying every flying image beloved of fans of martial arts. They fight, leap, spin, roll, fall, battle and create worlds and dramas with coffin-like wooden boxes that they manoeuvre. The boxes represent the Shaolin discipline of self-control that is both physical and spiritual. SUTRA is a spectacle of athleticism that explores the philosophy of faith behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with kung fu within a dance context.
