A Gallerina’s Guide (Nudes) Offers A Humorous Look At The Male Gaze


“A Gallerina’s Guide (Nudes) | Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre”

What a great introduction to the work of Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre.

I’m sure this particular video has benefited from searchers seeking nudes and video recommendations on YouTube and I love the fact that some of those surfers might have actually paid attention to the video.

This section from the larger piece A Gallerina’s Guide has a light, humorous touch yet covers key points in discussions of the male gaze.

The beautifully edited reel below of Duckler’s dances reveals a deep commitment to staged settings and found environments with costume choices that suggest other interesting narratives. What a nice find!
