Clothed, the choreography would have made no great impact. Asriel parted their legs, shifted their pelvises, rippled their spines, new contours and alignments of their musculature would emerge. Its effect is one of drama. The leg becomes real, the arabesque not. It was the former ballet star Robert Helpmann who famously observed the problem with dancing naked: when you stop on the music, not all parts of your anatomy stop at the same time.

How do you think you would react to the following showings? The look of the bare leg drastically changes the entire aesthetics of the form. And when it does, it changes our perception of muscles and flesh; it plants new meanings and ideas. Ballet, however, is principally a musical form of dancing. The effect, though, has always been to establish their mortality rather than any ideal qualities. One had more muscular firmness and definition, the other more softness and linear flow.

Advertisement Is this a big deal? In the last 20 years, however, there has been a trend for women to expose more skin surface too. Fascinatingly, where it is well deployed, the drama beneath the surface feels far from slow. Much art is poor, while the novels of the Marquis de Sade are pornography taken to a brilliant, horrifying and extraordinary peak. That was the year I became a critic; I had no inkling how much stage nakedness awaited me. He then gave lingeringly searching gazes into our eyes.
