Project Polunin at The London Coliseum

Sergei Polunin

Sergei Polunin to present special Sunday West End matinee

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 22 November 2017

Sergei Polunin has announced he will host a special mixed programme at the London Coliseum in a matinée performance on Sunday 10 December, offering 100 seats in the first two rows of the stalls to disadvantaged children, as well as providing a significant number of seats to ballet students.

The unique event will support Project Polunin’s ongoing initiative to make dance accessible to people of all ages and incomes, and to inspire, nurture and support the creativity of young people in dance.

The special programme will include Christian Spuck’s Le Grand Pas de Deux, danced by Jason Reilly & Elisa Badenes from Stuttgart Ballet; What Love Tells Me by John Neumeier, danced by Alexandre Riabko & Silvia Azzoni from Hamburg Ballet; Memoria, danced and choreographed by Miguel Altunaga from Rambert; Fredrick Ashton’s Rhapsody Pas de Deux, danced by Valentino Zucchetti & Akane Takada from The Royal Ballet.

Polunin himself will also dance in three pieces in the special programme: the ground-breaking solo Take Me To Church based on David LaChapelle’s video, which went viral in 2015; Diana And Actaeon (created by Agrippina Vaganova), and Satori (created by Polunin). He will be joined in Satori by Natalia Osipova from The Royal Ballet, Jason Reilly from Stuttgart Ballet, Alexey Lyubimov from The Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Music Theatre, and The Royal Ballet School Junior Associate Tom Waddington.

Satori will be accompanied by the Orchestra of English National Opera, conducted by Gavin Sutherland.

Tickets for the special matinee on Sunday 10 December can be purchased through the London Coliseum website.

Please note the one-off programme differs for the other performances of Project Polunin – Satori.
