FOR the first time in four years, the Shaolin Monks, legendary warrior monks of China's Shaolin Temple, bring their unique display of physical feats to the UK with their hit show Wheel of Life.
Direct from the fabled Shaolin temple in the foothills of the Song Shang mountain range in China's Henan province, 20 Shaolin monks and five young trainees will be taking to the stage to demonstrate their martial arts expertise in an awe-inspiring performance.
The show tours eight venues throughout the UK from October 25 arriving in Birmingham at the Symphony Hall on Sunday October 26.
Wheel of Life tells the inspiring story of how the monks' loyalty to their Emperor was betrayed, of how they were almost destroyed, and how five young monks survived to continue the Wheel of Life.
Their art enables them to shatter wooden staves which attackers smash against their heads, arms and legs, balance the entire weight of their bodies on sharpened spears, perform handstands on two finger tips and break bricks and iron bars against their heads.
