On Stage Alone

Maud Allan spanned the social dichotomy between purity, chastity, and otherworldliness opposed to sexual provocation of her era, the twilight of the Victorian Era. Her achievement was gained despite a troubled family history, which surfaced publicly. Nevertheless, she was able to lead her audiences to question their assumptions about female sexuality and identity through her Salome performances. She embodied spectators' hidden desires, and they in turn projected them onto her.
