Ulyanovsk BDSM flash mob: the expert revealed the background blew up social media stocks


Students from all over mother Russia spontaneously, but quickly organized a flashmob in support of the cadets of Ulyanovsk Institute of civil aviation, to exemplary punish “disgrace the uniform”: as they say, dared the scoundrels to lay out in an Internet video where they are in shorts and caps in the Dorm dance twerk — a parody video to the song Satisfaction DJ Benn Benassi (video original busy girls).

Videos with lightning speed shot in many universities of the country, like the revolution, the locomotive which often became students. People just want to live in a free country and breathe, not wanting any organization or big bosses have to tell them what to dance and what to dance. A flashmob in support of the students-pilots hijacks an increasing number of universities. We turned to the expert on youth subculture and modern dance Anton Kirsh with a question — what wrong guys, removing this video?

— First, I note that the movie is from the point of view of style, clearness of movements is shot very well, — says Anton — nothing wrong here I do not see in genre this is a parody! It’s a wonder why this element of the youth subculture as the twerk Oh, that again falls under the prohibition in our country, as once-rock-n-roll…

— This is not the first case?

— Well, we all remember two years ago twerk Orenburg “Bees”, after which all of a sudden stood on the ears, began to deny, revoke, in dance classes is a fashion trend, to ridicule, to condemn, but in the end — forbidden fruit is sweet, and twerk started dancing the whole country. All these savagery with restrictions come from the low culture of people who do not understand what the breathing world, as developing young people how to develop the dance culture. Twerk is an offshoot of the dance styles booty dance (in provisional translation — “dance sing”), where plans to actively work the glutes, hips and belly, the rest of the body is almost not involved…

— Where booty-dance increased?

These traditions date back to tribal African dance. Of course, everything has its deep roots and its — crucially — natural. Booty dance very popular around the world today, dancing both women and men. Moreover, Buti dance even out of the framework of pure youth subculture. To the guys from the Ulyanovsk Institute such a parody already filmed students from Europe, from Britain. And I have not heard that there is someone that was banned.

— As for the style of clothing shown in the video?

Is a widely replicated in the world of the sadomasochistic subculture, such as apparel in a serious context and, to an even greater extent, a parody, can be seen in the great number of movies, dramas, operas and ballets (the latter “Nureyev” at the Bolshoi theater confirmation: the cage dancers sitting in caps and straps), of the videos. In a broad fashion, it imposed a Finnish artist and Laaksonen, better known under the pseudonym Tom of Finland: his homosexual aesthetics influenced, in turn, the German uniform. But whatever the roots of this phenomenon, style, belts and caps have become so common place, what to look for, here are some immoral things just funny… it may be people that just don’t look out the window.

— That is to blame here not for that guys?

— It is absolutely harmless joke. And my opinion is that there is no need to talk about what made these guys (in fact, at home, in the Dorm), and it is necessary to clarify some reaction to that part of society which rushed to condemn them. This response is hardly adequate.
