Description Tyler Coppin transforms himself into one of Australia's first international art heroes - the pocket size genius of outrage and bravado - Sir
Robert Helpmann - as he chronicles Bobby's life from the seclusion of the dressing room to the suburbs of Sydney.
Caught between acts of the ballet "Don Quixote", an aging Robert Helpmann fights his demons while recounting a life in the theatre which began as a young ballet dancer from Mount Gambier. He takes us from his precocious beginnings on his father's station and getting expelled from Prince Alfred College to dance classes in Adelaid
