Time Out says
Sutra is back in Istanbul after 9 years with the thrill and freshness of the very first time.
This unforgettable show is a meeting of martial arts with modern dance and strength with tranquillity. Sutra was conceived when the monks of the famous Shaolin Temple, the 1,500 years old Buddhist school, and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, one of the most influential choreographers of our times, came together. With the collaboration of nineteen monks from this monastery who have mastered the martial arts, Cherkaoui has succeeded in creating an artistic universe that touches the hearts of the audience. Sutra presents a breath-taking experience in which dance meets tradition and spirit with physical discipline.
