Mysterious. Shoes.

English?? Follows:)

מה, מתי, למה וכ”ו

לפני כשבועיים, קצת אחרי שעברתי דירה

היכן: אוטובוס בדרך הביתה, ליפו

מה צדות עיניי: זוג גרביים מכסים מגפיים. הכי הגיוני בעצם

מי הנועלת? דנה, אשר מספרת שהחורף “פתאום” התחשק לה והרגיש לה ללבוש הרבה שחור. והמגפיים שלה חומים, והן הרגישו לה בהירים, או בוהקים, או לא קשורים לכל השחור האפל הזה

אז היא עשתה מעשה פשוט, וכיסתה אותם

בדרך הזו אני יכולה לשנות ולהחליף את הצבע והמראה של המגף כמה שאני רוצה, בקלות. הוא יותר זורם, הוא אחר ומשתנה – היא מספרת. ומי היא דנה? דנה פורר, שחקנית ומנהלת האנסמבל של תאטרון המסתורין. כן כן , יש דבר כזה. גם אני גיליתי זאת רק בזמן שיחה על גרביים

בכל אופן, תאטרון המסתורין מופיע בפינות האפלות והנסתרות של התחנה המרכזית. דנה מספרת שהמופע משלב השפעות מתרבויות רבות, והאתר שלהם מגלה לי שהמופע מבוסס גם על טקסטים מיסטיים וקלאסיים

אז אם מסתורין סרוג אל תוך מיסטיקה חתוכה על גבי מגף עושה לכם את זה – בואו. אני הולכת להיות שם. עם גרביים, מגפיים וכמה פינות מסתוריות בלב ובנשמה

לרכישת כרטיסים מסתוריים או ל-לייק לעמוד הפייסבוק המסתורי מכולם

When: a short while ago, shortly after I moved to a new home

Where: on a bus ride, on my way home to Jaffa

What about?? I spot Dana wearing shoes covered by socks.

“I created these sock-covers for shoes because this winter I’ve been wearing a lot of black, and just felt the brown boots didn’t match. The sock-cover allows me to change the colour of the boot as I want whenever I feel like it”.

“At the beginning the socks covered the entire front and the toe cap, but then they tore after a short while, so I just cut them open at the toes”

What did I like about it? I love improvisation, and I love to spot items personalised by their users. Especially when the personalisation is about the construction, not only decoration.

So who is Dana? She tells me she performs in a theater group called “The Mysterious Theater”, or in Hebrew “Mystorin”,  which sounds like a kind of magical tour to me.

Their website states they “combine mystical and classic texts with a variety of performing arts”, they perform in the Tel-Aviv Central Bus station which is a maze with many hidden corridors and underground halls. Yep, a little scary, and mysterious too 🙂

Check out their upcoming shows

Mine; sea sand and shoes

What about: Meeting Danielle Yaor, who studies design in Rietveld, Amsterdam.

Danielle believes that ‘fashion design enfolds a subtle power to challenge social structures’ and is the creator of collection of shirts entitled ‘Mine’.

And in Danielle’s words: “‘Mine’ explains that your vagina is entirely yours! And creates a social awareness with a clear say – stop the rape culture”.

You can buy the shirts here

Where: We meet in Jaffa-Tel-Aviv

What else is happening: Danielle was visiting Tel-Aviv also to have her collection of shirts photographed by Ofer Dabush. You can see it also in Cake Mag 😉

What is she wearing: shoes bought in the flea market in Amsterdam.

Moving house, and shoes

Recently I moved to a new house.

It’s a step which entails a change because I no longer live alone, but with my partner. The house is old and beautiful but most of all is starting to feel like home, cozy and intriguing.

I think there will be many more stories to tell about the house, about Jaffa – which is where we live – and about my partner’s shoe collection which is quite remarkable and expresses a unique and interesting taste 🙂

The night before the move i went out with Avivit, a good friend who runs a small second-hand clothing business and also mends and alters many of the clothes. “It’s like a farewell party for you before moving into your new life” Avivit declared with a smile.

Avivit has this incredible eye for finding hidden gems in the street. I mean if I see a pile of clothes someone left on a street corner I would probably hesitate or feel embarrassed to start looking through it. But with Avivit all the magic happens. This way we found a pile full of fun and stylish stuff. A pile which we soon discovered was left outside by a really cool and stylish couple, which also sew some of their clothes.

So this is one of the fun items found that night.

I wonder if they too will be sued for red out sole bottoms??:) Doubt it… 

And where also did we go?

To the Gagarin, to see Deaf Chonky.

 

So keep moving, listening, finding. Happy February 🙂
