Behind the seams
Visitors to the Beit Maierov Gallery in Holon will be able to enjoy a new angle on the history of the Israeli film industry at the “Movie Seamstress” exhibition.
The retrospective looks at the work of local costume designer Rona Doron, who was responsible for creating clothes worn by leading actors in many of our most memorable bigscreen productions.
The exhibition, curated by Merritt Parkhomovsky, opens on January 14 and will run until March 7. It features designs put together by Doron for such Israeli blockbusters as Aviya’s Summer (1988) and Under the Domim Tree (1994) – both of which starred Gila Almagor – Turn Left at the End of the World (2004) and Lost Islands (2008).
To date, Doron has provided costume designs for more than 60 productions. She has been nominated for 21 Ophir Awards, winning six.
Admission to the gallery is free.

Images of Ethiopia
Nilli Glick’s debut exhibition “Aside,” which opened last week at Beit Ha’omanim in Tel Aviv, will run until January 24. The exhibition, curated by Dorit Gur Arie, was inspired by a trip Glick made to Ethiopia, where she was struck by the bright African light and rich colors and the simple forms she encountered in the rural areas.
Glick’s work oscillates between photography and painting, as the digital processing veers towards the latter. She edits what she sees and separates and joins elements and forms in a seemingly random manner.
The result spawns landscapes of consciousness that offer the observer images that can be interpreted as she or he sees fit.
Glick’s monochrome creations naturally accentuate line and form but also tend towards the amorphous.

Cross-border dance creation
Spanish dancer Domingo Ortega will join forces with Israeli flamenco professionals Netta Sheizaf, Sharon Sagi and Sahara Piksie in an emotive performance of flamenco work called Minotauros. The foursome will perform the work from January 11 to 15 in Ashdod, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Upper Nazareth and Ramle.
The work is the result of an encounter in October between flamenco dancers Sheizaf and Sagi with tribal fusion performer Piksie and international megastar Ortega at a multidisciplinary dance convention in Malta. Minotauros feeds off a wide range of emotions and sentiments, including physical strength, tenderness and fragility, which combine to produce an all-conquering power.
The performers use flamenco, dance, song and instrumental music to tell the tale of the fabled eponymous hybrid creature.
Musical accompaniment is provided by flamenco singer Yael Horowitz, in addition to Spanish guitarist Fyty de Triana, Israeli guitarist-singers Yehuda “Shuki” Shveiki and Ofir Atar, and percussionist Hagai Leshem.
