Conversation with Szögi Csaba on the traditional women’s slippers from Szeged, Hungary. Csaba is not only an award winning dancer, choreographer, dance teacher, ensemble and theatre director, but he is also an activist for and expert on the Szeged slippers. The fact that some of his relatives were shoe and slipper makers in Szeged led him to search out active slipper craftsmen. He went on to form the Szeged Slipper Foundation, and is active in the process of getting these traditonal slippers onto the UNESCO list of Hungarian traditional heritage.
