Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Sutra, featuring the monks of the Shaolin Temple in China, premiered in 2008 and has since achieved cult status. With this piece, the Belgium-born artist with Flemish and Moroccan roots may have reached a high point in his personal blend of Eastern philosophy and Western thought. The encounter celebrated in Sutra combines Western contemporary dance with kung fu, for a super energized performance that comes off as highly rational in the choreography’s geometric lines, revealing all the grace, beauty, rigor and sheer power of the martial arts discipline.
Music by Szymon Brzóska
