An interview with Sergei Polunin
by Alex Needham in The Guardian.
Directed and choreographed by Peter Schaufuss, the ballet has already prompted some salacious speculation about prison sex scenes, but Polunin says that it is too early to talk about the specifics. "I think it will be violent," he says. "I know there's going to be blood and screaming and real dancing, but I'm not sure exactly what it's going to be."
There is a also documentary about Polunin in the works, made by a team including Gabrielle Tana, producer of Ralph Fiennes's version of Coriolanus, Julie Kavanagh, who wrote the Intelligent Life profile and who has known Polunin since he was a boy, and her husband, Ross MacGibbon, head of dance at the BBC.
