Well, who would have guessed it?! In this feature video from BBC News Online, the trainee dancers explain why they do it and all the benefits they gain from taking part. Sounds like it is both physically and mentally good for them and should be encouraged!

If you were selected as a volunteer to take part on stage in this performance and one of the naked performers quietly asked you if they could remove all your clothes, what would answer?

Does anyone know the meaning of this?
Here’s an interesting nudity project that took place in Bristol, UK, this Thursday (15th November). Artist Claudio Ahlers recruited eight volunteers to appear naked in Corner 77, a venue in the Stokes Croft area of the city. The eight participants prepared themselves in private prior to being unveiled to the passing public outside.
The artist said the aim of the project was a celebration of common humanity, to show people of varying ages as their genuine selves. As is often the way, male participants completely outnumbered their female counterparts. Even though male nudity seems far more likely to cause offence, women are still less likely to be brave or confident enough to be seen naked in public.
To quote the artist, “Yes, nudity is often considered shocking but it has power and shared humility. Vulnerability shows our genuine selves.”
It would be nice to find out about such installations and events before they happen for once! If you hear about any naked events, please let us know ASAP.
