On the 29 and 30 of March a production called Sutra is coming to the Wales Millennium Centre in the Donald Gordon Theatre, which features 20 practicing Buddhist Monks from the Shaolin Temple in China.  

The production is a collaboration between  the choreographer Sidi Larbi, the sculptor Antony Gormley (Angel of the North) and the Warrior monks themselves. Aged between 10 and 26 the monks performing follow a strict Buddhist doctrine, with kung-fu and tai chi martial arts forming a part of their daily ritual.
