"Dépouillement" - another beautiful Pas de Deux by Kundi and Christofi

I have just found this clip of Sarah Kundi and Jade Hale Christoi on YouTube.  Compare it to Dépouillage which I embedded in "Ballet Black's Appeal" on 12 March 2013. See also "Why Ballet Black is special" of 20 May 2013.

The music is by Alastair Broadley.

Dépouillement and dépouillage are not easy to translate because the word dépouiller has a literal as well as figurative meaning. The literal meaning is "to skin" so I guess the figurative meaning must be "to strip down". Thus, dépouillage would be the process of stripping down and dépouillement stripping down perhaps..

Whatever the meaning this is a chance to enjoy two fine dancers.
