DANCER: Sergei Polunin

DANCER: Sergei Polunin Sergei Polunin, a young Ukrainian boy, joined the UK's prestigious Royal Ballet at the age of 13 and became the youngest ever principal at 19. Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm.

Here is an unprecedented look into the life of the complex young man who made ballet go viral. Urban rebel, iconoclast, airborne angel, Sergei transformed the shape of ballet as we know it. But virtuosity came at a high price: in January 2012 at the peak of his success at age 25, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom, he took the dramatic decision to walk away from his classical ballet career.

An immersive personal portrait of the controversial ballet superstar directed by Oscar-nominated Steven Cantor, with stunning clips from visionary director and photographer David LaChapelle and Emmy-award winner Ross MacGibbon.
