The Role of Nudity in Dance
The programs contains partial nudity, so viewer discretion is advised. Atlanta Ballet isn't the only dance company showing some skin though. The April 2014 issue of Dance Magazine features a discussion with five choreographers about the place of nudity in the dance art form with the cover tag, "Naked Onstage: 5 Choreographers Who Use Nudity + What It's Like to Bare It All."
You can pick up the latest issue of Dance Magazine at your local newsstand to access the full article.
Marie Chouinard: "It's simply part of the work. The body is our basis. It's our medium. The flesh brings you back to the body itself."
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui: "You don't have a lot of opportunities to compare yourself to other bodies, and you can recognize yourself and your scars in others. I admire people who use the naked body to make a statement about humanity."
Alexander Ekman: "I find nudity fascinating, and it's sad that it's so taboo, because it questions our whole existence."
