Why do people like Dave St-Pierre's make shows like 'Tendresse', the work that involves men scrambling over the audience in the nude and apparently spitting on the personal property of dance critics?
It's all very very simple.
The choreographer makes the work because he knows it's ridiculous and outrageous and this makes for easy ticket sales so theatres will book it. Why spend weeks crafting movement when you can just whip out your tackle and shove it in someones face?
Theatres love it because they know the show is media bait and will attract coverage of sufficient quantity to sell tickets. Said theatre will also bee seen as "risky" and "edgy" in their programming decisions.
Folks in the media love it because it gives them something else to do away from all the review writing and they get to use the word "arse" more than once. Their editors love it because pieces about shows that have nudity in them are good link and comment bait, this is god for ad revenues.
Audiences love it because they can say "I was there" and those inside the industry can profess their love or hatred of it and thereby seal their cool/morale standing in the wacky world of dance. Those that describe such works as "touching" are usually hiding a deeper mania.
So, everybody's a winner, except the actual dance profession of course which ends up looking ridiculous.
As if it wasn't already ridiculous enough.
