- British newspaper The Guardian published on 4 September last, a video which features prima ballerina of the Staatsballett Berlin (Berlin State Opera), Polina Semionova doing a commercial for Swiss shoe brand NavyBoot Swiss SS1. The commercial was produced by Ben Strebel and Michel Comte. In the film, Polina shows her virtuosity and proves that she is not only a classical repertoire dancer. In addition to the video, Polina posed for Michel’s lenses along with Swiss model and actress Melanie Weinig, which resulted in the production of give aways postcards. This piece of work is of such good taste that it was impossible not to publish it here. I hope you enjoy it.
