“There is nothing quite so exciting as seeing a star being born”. This quote from the London Times captures the feeling generated by Sergei Polunin’s explosive and elegant talent that Richard MacDonald has incorporated in 540 Revolution. MacDonald’s choice to emphasize the extreme twist of the dancer’s torso gives the viewer a kinetic sense of the Polunin’s ability to spin through the air — the outstretched leg signifies the great degree of control the dancer is exercising.
