Sergei Polunin is a Ukrainian ballet dancer, born in 1989, who quickly proved to be a dancing prodigy. Training from a very young age, Sergei moved to Britain at the age of 13 to join the Royal Ballet School and when he was twenty years old became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. But two years later, he quit in dramatic fashion, citing his unhappiness. Despite returning to Russia to join a new company soon thereafter, Polunin decided to walk away from dance entirely at the age of 25. This in-depth documentary focuses on the artist’s upbringing, family relationships, mental health and aspirations, offering a revealing insight into the mind of a tortured genius.
