The Berlin label UY is celebrating its fifth birthday this year. As part of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring Summer 2020, it invites fashion enthusiasts and techno fans to a unique birthday celebration. We were at the exclusive press preview and are very impressed.
A spiritual ceremony of the extra class
The Berlin label UY Studio kidnapped its audience on Thursday evening in another world. On Friday the 5th of July they celebrate their fifth birthday and we were one day before at the exclusive press preview. Under the name UY ZONE 005 , a team of 18 dancers and a large number of other contributors staged a unique choreography. In strong connection to the Berlin nightlife, the performance took place in no other place than the Berghain . In golden, floor-length skirts, the dancers moved to deep techno beats by Dasha Rush like in a trance state. Of course, the outfits were designed by UY Studio .
Expression of human identity
" We need warmth in times like these, " says the label. The collective wants to create a framework in which they can express their identity. They see their dance as a kind of meditative act. During the ceremony, an intense interaction was observed among the 18 dancers. The entire performance characterized a high degree of aesthetics and intimacy, captivating audiences right from the start. The closeness among the dancers and the much bare skin made one aware of one's own humanity as a spectator. Finally, after more than an hour, the visitors left deeply impressed and inspired the Berlin Techno Temple.
