I've always wondered why there wasn't a DVD made of RAkU (and 2 other short ballets). Well, it appears that it has been filmed for posterity, and will be premiered in NYC this summer:

Fire and Ashes, Making the Ballet RAkU
Shirley Sun, USA, 2017, 60m
New York Premiere
Set in historic Kyoto, the fictional story of RAkU is based on a true event, the burning of a sacred temple by a deranged monk. Yuri Possokhov’s choreography for prima ballerina Yuan Yuan Tan mingles Japanese Noh theater and elements of Butoh with classical and contemporary ballet styles to create powerful dance drama. The film begins with Russian-born Possokhov and his team making plans over vodka and borscht, then moves into an intense rehearsal process, and culminates in a breathtaking performance by Yuan Yuan and her male partners—Damian Smith and Pascal Molat—as they enact this passionate tale of love and revenge.
