Sébastien Bertaud speaks about his ballet piece for the Dior Spring-Summer 2020 show in Shanghai

The Swiss artists' community Monte Verità was one of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s inspirations for her Dior Spring-Summer 2020 collection, resulting in dresses awash in color from yellow to red. Today, as a follow-up to his ‘Utopia’ performance at the Origen Festival in July, choreographer Sebastien Bertaud created an exclusive ballet for the Dior Shanghai show featuring costumes designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri that looked like they were painted right onto the skin, magnifying movement and highlighting the ready-to-wear collection on the runway. Hear what the choreographer has to say about this poetic collaboration.
