Since 2012, when he walked out on the Royal Ballet, the Ukrainian dancer Sergei Polunin has lived his life in a whirl of media attention. The erratic brilliance of his performances has been contrasted with reports of drug use and personal unhappiness, and the face that he has presented to the world has been a troubled one. The film Dancer, released this month, is a revealing portrait of a young man struggling to cope with his family’s breakup and the burden of his extraordinary talent.

Unsurprisingly, Pite is one of the dance world’s most sought-after artists, so it is no small triumph that the Royal Ballet has commissioned a new work from her.
