This documentary offers a uniquely personal portrait of a most singular man and dancer, and will be followed by a Live satellite Q&A with Sergei Polunin as well as an exclusive performance.

Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom - his talent more a burden than a gift.

From archive footage of Polunin training at the age of 6 to be an Olympic gymnast, to intimate material shot by both his parents, and in-depth interviews with family, friends, colleagues through to footage of Sergei’s life on and off the stage now, we witness every step of his journey.
