As soon as the performance was over, the dancers entered the backstage and posed in front of the camera still sweating and out of breath. That is the moment when the dancer is finally discharged from the role on the stage and the body together with the mind is still involved with what just happened but in the same time it relaxes offering to the camera the authenticity of its present moment. The dancer who seconds before was at his/her peak representing the object for public entertainment is now simply present again in the "real world" out of stage as him/herself as a person. Now that the audience has left, he/she is conscious that the show is over.
