The UY Zone presentation was a celebration of the 3rd anniversary of the label’s existing in Berlin. Annually they do art performances and this year they created - together with the talented Matan Zamir - a post-war era inspired performance where all dancers wore the spring/summer conceptual collection. The earthy colours and natural fabrics represent the poorness which comes after war and all the different cuts and shapes are linked to a raw working class inspirational influence.
Post war was the main source of inspiration for the choreographer to develop the performance based on wanting to show powerlessness, exhaustion. Altogether, something that is removed far from glamour or fashion and instead gives the feeling of melancholy interlaced with the romantic notion of hope.
