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.
