This summer during Norio Sugiura’s workshop in Copenagen, a photographer asked me to tie her. For a long time she had a deep scar in her lower back. And anew she wanted to make friends with it. It was her birthday. We sneaked to the first floor factory hall and had a fun midnight session.
is working with foam puppets and dance , theatre and signs
with animals and objects. Worked a lot with other-abled people.
Also Puppetmaker theatres and sometimes film.
25. October tying with Fel
Since about one year Fel attends the Shibari classes in Haus Sommer.
And inspite of his bodysize of 1. 95 meter hight ( and 85 kg weight) the sunnyboy prooved to be surprisingly talented for suspension as a model.
The reason may be in his yoga or surf background or in his other activities which compose his phisicality or in his positiv spirit.
So he made the step from the classes within a single year to the stage and he was nominated from Haus Sommer for this performance.
Shibari classes in June will partially be replaced:
– 4 + 11 as ususal by me: 6pm interm. + 8.15pm beginnerCLASSES ON THE 11TH ARE CANCELLED!!!
– 18th: 6pm interm. at 8.15pm beginner by Kinbaku_boy (here mostly in ropes)
– 25th June there is one class at 7pm for both intermediate + beginners by Clyo Rospy
Sometimes I am anxious putting myself into ropes. This time I planned a painful shape, which I experienced before passively, but not on my own. Made a test for the top part and was kinda happy. On shooting day it was the second tie, and tiredness was slowly crawling up. My thigh skin was a little wound. Don’t be whiny, I said to myself, choosing an extra thin rope for the waist part. The bandage allowed me to cheat around the spine, but not much. Wondered what Johannes thought behind his camera, but decided better not to think about. Finally I pulled up my legs, fixed the feed and gently lowered my chest. But there is nothing gentle in this shape. Immediately a heavy bend was forced into my spine and, like always, just a minute for the shooting, if at all. Out of breath and with a red head I pulled myself up. And got stuck. I asked Johannes if he could lift me. Telling by his look, he must have thought I was kidding, or what is this crazy chick doing here! He lifted me.
I felt heavy but could free my feet. And he safely put me down. During the pause we had nuts and orange juice, and got ready for the next round. I remember the ropes got stuck again and it was dramatic. I had tied my hands pulling upward and my waist pulling downward. It was a standing position and I could feel my back getting tired. Johannes hurried again to get the shoot, befor shuffing under a chair to rest on. When the drama was over there was lots of relief and survival fun.
From July 25 – 30 performing with Peter Frost and his group Le Frau. Wrestling with special guest Anna Konda from Marzahn and her fem fight club. Ludmilla Skripkina reviving the feminist Russian revolution at Martin Gropius Bau.
Looking much forward to rope, dance, bewitch you!
