Shaolin Warriors

Van Duzer Theater
Over 1,000 years ago, Buddhist monks at the Shaolin Temple in China originated the martial art form known as kung fu. Today, 23 monks from that same temple travel the world as the Shaolin Warriors, offering a re-creation of a “day” at the temple and a rare glimpse into a seldom-seen world. In a mind-boggling, fully choreographed, action-packed production, witness the serenity of morning meditation, the stunning physicality of daily exercises and amazingly choreographed scenes of ritual combat.

"They combine the agility and grace of gymnasts with the showmanship of Cirque du Soleil performers."—The Washington Post
