October 27, 2017

The topic of coworking in any form fascinates me. Just discovered hOUR SPACE – the therapy coworking community, where you can rent space for an hour, day or monthly – they offer various plans.

hOUR Space is located in the very heart of Sofia and their user-friendly website with all the information you need is in Bulgarian. Best of luck to this brilliant initiative!

Shoemakers

October 23, 2017

One of my favourite Elizabethan plays is Thomas Dekker’s “The Shoemakers’ Holiday“.  The Gentle Craft.

Some 500 years later, sometimes a shoe or a favourite bag still needs a bit of repair and finding such craftsmen is a huge challenge nowadays.

The artistic gentleman on the photo is Nikolay Radlov. The most impressive thing about his small shoemaker’s studio is the artistic environment he has created around – painting the pavement around and decorating the tree at the entrance.

There’s no rest for the creative!


Feeding Anaconda Book Launch

October 17, 2017

I love book launches, as every book is as unique as its author. A few months ago when the book was just hot out of the printing house, I wrote about Janeta Stoykova’s “Feeding Anaconda. The official book launch was tonight, but no wonder, a second print run has been done – great books find their readers quickly. The Author, The Author – an amazing personality! And so is the book in which everyone finds bits and pieces of oneself. For now available only in Bulgarian. Best of luck, Jani!

Artsy

October 9, 2017

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.” -René Magritte

René Magritte, the Belgian surrealist artist, became well known for creating a number of witty and thought-provoking images. Often depicting ordinary objects in an unusual context, his work is known for challenging observers’ preconditioned perceptions of reality.

Artsy has embarked on a mission to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection. Their growing database of 800,000 images of art, architecture, and design by 70,000 artists spans historical, modern, and contemporary works, and includes the largest online database of contemporary art.

René Magritte’s investment in exploring the relationship between signifier, message and code, is awesome.


One Dance Week

October 7, 2017

One Dance Week – international festival for contemporary dance and Shiro Takatani’s Chroma performance –  a play of light and shadow, visual effects and large graphics that chase and overwhelm the players on stage. A delight to the eyes. Choreographer Shiro Takatani overcomes the laws of physics and modern optical technology to make the audience look for meaning in images on the screen. Plovdiv – 6-7 October 2017.
