Dancing Bare HTML version

Dancing Bare is the at times risqué tale of an innocent
young man who swaps the suffocating confines of middle
class New Zealand for love and liberation in nineteen-
sixties London and Europe. Revelling in the freedom
conferred by anonymity, he becomes an actor, stripper,
rent boy, lover, teacher and dedicated traveller through
Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, where
travellers were uncommon and countries still retained
many of the differences that made travelling so
interesting. Rigby meets with a wide variety of people,
life styles and customs, eventually settling in Paris where
the state did not consider his sexuality to be a criminal
A moving and amusing story of hope and love, sex and
sexuality, theatrical showmanship and artless innocence,
laced with a little philosophical speculation in the pursuit
of true love.
