I have even seen a heavily stretching of the right leg all the way back to the head-(instead of the simple, elegant developpe devant)- while the ballerina is in that arched/horizontal/lifted position, which always makes for the whole skirt to open. I never really liked it, for which it looks too modern and gymnastic. It was really a revelation to see how the simple passage becomes a completely different animal after Markova's correction.

So it's not so much a fantasy of I-thou, but a fantasy of finding an ideal peer-group, if the ballet is about a poet and his thoughts (as I've seen somewhere suggested), it's not like a poet looking for ONE TRUTH, but being at home with his thoughts"
