Sutra hit the stage at Birmingham Hippodrome last night and it certainly was not one to be missed. I had no idea what to expect but after watching the show, I was so glad to have witnessed their acrobatic feats.
The dancers, who were aged between 10 and 26, were truly incredible. Their talent and the passion they put into the performance shone through out and their skills were unbelievable. The audience gasped the whole way through, failing to believe that what they were seeing before them, was real – an uncountable amount of flips and tricks.
All that was on the stage, was 21 wooden boxes and the dancers themselves, although it doesn’t sound much, I feel if there was a spectacular background, it would have detracted from the performance and would have given the show a whole new feel. Something that I loved, which you don’t often get to see, was the fact there was a simple sheer net as the back-drop, allowing you to see the musicians behind.
If everything else wasn’t enough to convince you to buy tickets, you can take my word that Sutra is definitely a mind-blowing show and you will be in awe of their martial art abilities. The strength and flexibility of the dancers, especially the 10 year old, will leave you with your jaw dropped and your eyes wide open.
