THE SWEETEST ENFANT TERRIBLE

Ballet Dancers Sergei Polunin & Kristina Shapran for Garage Magazine from GARAGE Magazine on Vimeo.

I styled this short film directed by George Harvey and starring Sergei Polunin. It was all pretty serendipitous as i had read and been really taken with this article about Sergei in Intelligent life in Paris a year ago. According to the piece he was the enfant terrible of the dance world and I remember thinking it sounded like quite the juxtapostion of worlds... and how someone could feasibly exist in a universe that demanded him to do as he was told...when it seemed that he only did whatever he wanted or was driven to do.



The best thing about two of Sergei's distinctive tattoos is that  he didn't know who they were when he got their faces etched on his skin forever. One is James Dean and the other one is Joker from Batman. Contrary to his rebel badass profile, he was actually sweet as a slice of peach pie.
