<B>This is going to hurt</B><P>Elisabeth Mahoney in The Guardian reviews Deborah Bull's Radio 4 programme about the history and future of ballerinas. One I missed I'm afraid I'm afraid. Did any of our readers hear it?<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>This impossible ideal has long defined the ballerina, but in The Archive Hour - Ballerinas (Radio 4) Deborah Bull revealed the its historical roots. Madeleine Guimard, it was, who set the stick-thin thing in motion; before that, apparently, the ballerina could have curves and cake. It's one of those facts you half-know - all ideals must have been constructed at some point - but the thrilling thing about this particular Archive Hour was that it brought ballet to life, revelled in its nonsense and then took a long look at it.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><A HREF="http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4218140,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A><BR>
