Naked like the subjects on the walls, the dancers struck-up a conversation of pure physicality with the works of Nude: Art from the Tate Collection for a special series of performances during the Sydney Festival. Beyond seeing the naked figure of a life study, the series also offered the public the chance to participate, as visitors were given the option to attend 3 select performances nude alongside performers. The series was a great success, with each session booking out rapidly and garnering celebratory reviews including Sydney Morning Herald, Limelight, The Australian, The Guardian. The performers interpreted the theme and tone of each room through their bodies, giving participants a physical experience of the works on show and a vicarious understanding of the raw emotions involved. It was this sense of mutual interaction which melded the living and painted flesh of Nude Live into a singular, ephemeral work of art, inviting audiences to experience the tradition of the nude anew, through their own bodies.

We're getting ready to see Nude Live , a delicious mix of art and modern dance, as part of Sydney Festival. This evening's performance of Nude Live is a little different, however. Like the six SDC performers who will dance naked, we — the audience — will be naked, too. We're given paper bags for our clothing and asked to disrobe.

The Royal Academy of Arts is to recruit young men and women to stand naked in a doorway facing each other while total strangers squeeze through an uncomfortably narrow space between them. Will exhibition visitors breathe in and face the naked man, or the naked woman? Will they make eye contact?
That being said, we have built something beautiful and good, have modeled loving responsibility and accountability to our kids, and I am certain I am with the man God chose for me. I'm approaching my 40th birthday and realizing, if anything happens, I will have to plan it myself. Again, reiterating it, don't expect a decade's worth of time with her, but enjoy her good while you two are together. It's gonna end regardless not trying to be a dick, but that is what is going to happen eventuallyso be smart and cut your losses before it gets harder. I understand that, and accept that. Move on, but after thanksgiving.
