Project Polunin is Sergei’s newest venture, which sees him collaborate with an international cast and creative team to bring contemporary works to the stage. Combining dancers, artists, musicians and choreographers from around the globe, the production strives to nurture and support people in the dance industry, inspiring them to become more creative.
Sergei Polunin is one of the world’s most famous ballet dancers, originally becoming a Principal at the Royal Ballet at the record-breaking young age of 19. After four years with the company, he performed with the Stanislavsky Theatre, Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre in Russia, before appearing in David LaChapelle’s music video version of Hozier’s popular song “Take Me to Church”.
2016 saw Sergei become the subject of the documentary feature Dancer produced by Gabrielle Tana, which followed his early life in ballet. 2017 sees Sergei make an appearance in Kenneth Branagh’s new feature film, Murder on the Orient Express.

Brought to the stage by one of ballet’s best dancers, the show aims to create new dance and ballet works for both stage and screen. Playing a strictly limited run at the London Coliseum, the production plays from December 5th to 10th 2017.
