Synopsis:

DOCUMENTARY: Oscar-nominated director Steven Cantor’s documentary film charts ballet prodigy Sergei Polunin’s battles with identity and commitment as he is on the cusp of becoming a legend.

Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. However, at age 25 he walked away from it all, stardom having all but driven him to self destruction. Dancer is an unprecedented examination of this complex young man who made ballet go viral.
