Dancer, actor and viral video star Sergei Polunin takes on the charismatic role of Rasputin in a sophisticated new dance drama

"Polunin is Rasputin, a titanic, totemic performance, revealing many facets of this controversial figure. Rasputin is a role for which he was destined.” ★★★★ Bachtrack

Sergei Polunin takes on a career-defining role as Grigori Rasputin in a new dance drama that explores the dark psychological depths of one of the most controversial figures in Russian history.

A youthful prodigy, Polunin became the London Royal Ballet’s youngest-ever male principal dancer at the age of just 21. But only two years later, he shocked the ballet world with his sudden decision to quit the company. He swiftly re-emerged in Russia, dancing with the Stanislavsky Music Theatre, and has gone on to develop a parallel career as an actor, appearing in films like Murder on the Orient Express. He has also reached a new audience on YouTube through the viral video Take Me To Church.

Rasputin explores the title character’s complex psychology and moral ambivalence, and his catastrophic effect on the Russian court on a set modelled on a chessboard.

This sophisticated new dance drama will undoubtedly be one of the dance highlights of the 2020 HKAF.
