First Solo is a new 7-minute ballet created by Andrey Kaydanovskiy, while the world premiere of Satori is choreographed by Polunin himself, with direction by Gabriel Marcel del Vecchio and an original score by the multi-award-winning German-born Lorenz Dangel. The line-up is completed with the London premiere of the most complete version of Kasyan Goleizovsky’s ballet suite, Scriabiniana, with music by Alexander Scriabin, marking the 125th anniversary of Goleizovsky’s birthday.

Project Polunin aims to convey the joy of dance through theatre, live broadcast, film, social media platforms and virtual reality, and, by collaborating with dancers, filmmakers, musicians, writers and artists, to create new works that will reflect our times as well as preserving and celebrating the history of classical dance. Project Polunin will strive to demonstrate the unifying power of dance.

Project Polunin plays at the London Coliseum from 5 to 10 December 2017.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
