If you are seeking a truly original cultural phenomenon that will awaken the senses, capture your heart, and leave you with big ideas that explore age-old martial arts and religion, then Sutra should be your next hot ticket. We can’t wait to catch the Toronto premiere at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts happening on May 12.
Sutra is the award-winning collaboration of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (choreographer of the Broadway-bound Jagged Little Pill, based on Alanis Morissette’s seminal album, and Beyoncé’s 2017 Grammy Awards performance), sculptor Antony Gormley, and nineteen Buddhist monks from the Shaolin Temple in China. Expect dazzling athleticism that explores the philosophy of fate behind the Shaolin tradition and its relationship with Kung Fu within a dance context.
“Few dance productions have made such an impact as Sutra,” The Telegraph said in a recent review that explored how this globally celebrated show has grown over the past decade. This unique performance will suspend your disbelief while examining the most basic underlying truths of humanity that connect us all. Surely a wonderful option for an early Mother’s Day surprise, or an unforgettable night out that will be dinner conversation fodder for years to come.
