Subject:        Nudity
 
I think that Elise Earthman's posting points out that, in terms of performance
values, female nudity and male nudity may have different impacts. Different
audience members may empathize, and I believe our culture is far more accepting
of nudity in women than men (a while back, wasn't full frontal female nudity in
USA an R, while the same for men was an X? or still is?).

Comment:        Re: SHK 5.0559  Re: Nudity
 
I'd like to propose that we historicize the discussion of nudity/nakedness and
consider differences between the "meanings" (emotional as well as cognitive) an
unclothed body might have had in Shakespeare's time and those that it has for
us.
