No it is not, porn doesn’t bludge from the tax payer

A boss of English National Ballet is wanting a “man-ban” on recruiting choreographers and has  claimed the current male-dominated perspective shapes the way audiences view things “like in porn”.

Ballet of course is nothing lik porn, for a start porn doesn’t bludge off the taxpayer.

Ballet and pornography may not be the most obvious of allies, but it appears they may have more in common than first thought.

For the new artistic director of the English National Ballet has compared the two genres as she speaks of the high proportion of male choreographers in dance, saying: “Like in porn, it shapes the way you look at things”.  

Tamara Rojo, a ballet dancer and artistic director, has now pledged to find more female choreographers for her company.

Saying there are issues she would like to see “approached by women” on stage, she claimed relationships are currently shown largely from a male perspective.

She told this week’s Time Out magazine men tended to have a “more physical” approach to choreography, while women start with the “emotional landscape”.
