It requires a lot of skill to go all out yet remain relaxed, casual, and ironic. Even more so when, as in this piece, the bodies of the dancers do entirely without the protection of clothes. more than naked was first performed ten years ago, and even then it was said that the large group piece “proposes a new, more relaxed way of thinking about nakedness in dance and in society”. Against the backdrop of the beauty craze, as pushed not least by all kinds of influencers, more than naked has lost none of its topicality even ten years later – with the original cast from 2013. Doris Uhlich puts an end to the worship of six-packs and thigh gaps. Instead, the flesh becomes a source of joy as it is. Demonstrating that sensitivity and radicalism, political performance and aesthetic accessibility, weight and dance are not mutually exclusive.
