They say - you are what you wear, and the beauty of this line lays in it's double meaning, the relationship between both material and person.
we are no human hangers, we are influencing what we wear just as much as we are influenced by it. Giving form and being formed. Reflecting.
In this video I AM.
i have cooperated with these wonderful designers, using fashion to express my movement, my music, my inner visions, choosing the right item to transmit a message YET at the same time letting it choose me, transform me inspire the message .
i have started making music with the age of 14, But i am AM music since i can remember. For years i was categorized into a certain style, but i am not one or the other, i am many. i am the wild and the elegant, i am the man and the woman i am the cat and the monkey. i am ONE. No need to try and put me in a box as i am the box its self and the space around it.
release yourself from definitions of others. It is only the narrow minded that can not comprehend verity, bound to rules it itself made up, be all the things you are and invent your self, you don't have to be special you already are.

OFRIN Presenting THE BRINGER
A cross media concert combining original music,
contemporary dance performance,
video art and visual effects.
The show is raising questions about our communication and existence in everyday modern life, sitting in front of our computers, existing through the virtual. Becoming distant from one another, while there is a whole generation that remembers and longs for a different way of communication. The time perception changes, we write our “everyday history” upon the facebook wall, documenting our life instead of living them, searching for the “light” to come in while being blinded by the pale screen light. But still, we long for “more”.
We, the ones that still remember, missing a feeling of HOME, a place to belong.
In order for the audience to “take in” the issues being brought up in the show and perhaps even find them selves in it, we chose to perform as THE BRINGERS.
THE BRINGER, a one expression figure, human in it’s physical form, is here to try and give us this feeling of home we are longing for, he communicates on one transmission, allows the viewer to be himself with no criticism or expectations.
He absorbs all feelings, frustrations and thoughts while elevating them into a quiet yet powerful place.
All performers on stage are wearing the bringers masks, while their face is still showing - as an analogy to the idea that we can all find a home within our selves- we can all be BRINGERS.
In the 75 min show, THE BRINGER is taking the listener through a philosophical journey in a world of fantasy, intense emotional dynamic music and mysterious visuals, communicating with dance language. The 3 musicians and 3 dancers interact as one, the musicians being a part of the choreography while the dancers performing a part in the music both supported by the minimalistic light design and video visuals, giving the audience a chance to dive into the darkest corners of deep feelings sea, or to shout freedom from the highest mountain, creating a strong clear atmosphere that is accompanying the viewer/listener long after the show is over..
