A random one but last night I went to see Sutra at The Sadler's Wells. Sutra is a brand new dance work inspired by the skills, strength and spirituality of Buddhist Shaolin monks. The 17 Monks performing in Sutra are directly from the original Shaolin Temple, situated near Dengfeng City in the Henan Province of China and established in 495AD by monks originating from India.
The set was designed by Antony Gormley and consists of 21 wooden boxes. This complimented the monks martial arts beautifully and all together it was a stunning show.
Sutra is on until the 26th of March and I highly recommend. Get along if you can.
