We had an incredible evening last night at the London Palladium for the Dancer live premiere event. The whole night was broadcast to over 200 cinemas in the UK and Ireland. First audiences enjoyed a screening of the film followed by a breathtaking performance from Sergei Polunin of ‘Take me to Church’. The crowd at London Palladium erupted into a standing ovation and Sergei was emotional seeing the reaction to his performance. Host Francine Stock joined us back on stage and brought Sergei back for a Q&A, taking questions from twitter and audience members at London Palladium.
In attendance at the London Palladium were many people from the film itself, including Sergei’s mother, his life-long friends and David LaChapelle. Ending with a standing ovation, the atmosphere was decidedly electric last night with social media alight today with praise of the film, the event and Sergei himself.
In case you missed it the film will be coming to cinemas on 10 March, you can find screening on dancermovie.co.uk
