To herald DIOR HOMME’s Autumn & Winter 2013 fashions, Fantastic Man has produced ROTATION: a dazzling compendium of modern motion in weekly Friday instalments.
Today the second episode: ALL OF US WILL LEARN. The remarkable ‘body-popping’ moves presented here by 26-year-old SEP DASHTI are performed in real time and without recourse to technological tricks. So there! One will notice that SEP performs most of his hypnotic illusionary manoeuvres along the same vertical plane, making his apparent ability to move highly unusual segments of his body independently of each other all the more striking. Although SEP is clearly at the vanguard of modern dance, he is quick to point out that there is a connection between his own contemporary stylings and the classical manoeuvres of his forbears. The ‘robot’ dance that has been so popular on the club and competition circuit of late actually owes much to the ‘first position’ pose in classical ballet. Who knew!
Next Friday, the ROTATION sequence of Fantastic Man x Dior Homme films continues apace, with a captivating and inspiring performance entitled WORK HARD, CHANGE HISTORY.
