This opens tonight with Elena Glurjidze and Igor Kolb also participating. Ivan Putrov has earned himself undreamed of publicity for this show thanks to Sergei Polunin, even a a slot on the BBC 10 o'clock news on Wednesday night: I predict a sell out.

I understand why Polunin is newsworthy right now, but can't help feeling there is too much emphasis on his participation in what is after all Ivan Putrov's show. The original 'Men in Motion' a couple of weeks ago was drastically cut down in size by the no-show of a disorganized Russian dancer who didn't complete his visa paperwork in time, a different programme with more reliable artists taking part should produce a longer evening next week.

By the way for all the hype about Polunin, prodigiously talented though he is, it was Ivan Putrov who stole the show last time dancing in Ashton's 'Dance of the Blessed Spirits' - he was simply beautiful beyond belief in a solo that emphasized his perfect line and musicality. My hope is that when the change of management at the RB finally occurs (can't come soon enough for me) Putrov will be reinstated into the company he served so loyally and with so little thanks. And I am by no way the only one of that view.

This second outing of Ivan Putrov's interesting venture 'Men in Motion' at Sadlers Wells was more successful second time around with the latest programme being of a decent length, but very much featuring the talents of the balletically delinquent Sergei Polunin. He repeated his performance in Goliezovsky's Narcisse but though he dances it well he doesn't portray either the playfulness or the self love that other protagonists have put across more effectively, his outing in the Nijinsky Faune was average and his incursion into choreography in a piece inspired by 50's icon James Dean was instantly forgettable. Once again it was actually Putrov who stole the show, firstly in Leonid Jacobson’s virtuoso solo Vestris and later as the lead dancer in Nacho Duarto’s Remanso.

Not quite the sell out that Putrov got last time around, perhaps being in direct competition with BRB at the Coliseum had something to do with that.
