Turquoise Dress

For 1,5  years I get tied by Tam now and I love it! Only I don’t understand, that suddenly some people don’t see me anymore as rigger. Which I did for the last 10 years and continue to like and develop.
I doubt this would happen as quickly to male riggers. But seems that perception of women in rope is still so common and natural that its easier to keep it like that. Intolerable!

Nevertheless I much enjoy hanging out in pure Kinbaku ties. Thanks Tam for all the beautiful struggle 🌸💀🌸

Kinbaku and Sex

When: October 22. 2017
From 1 – 7pm
Costs: 150 €

This workshop is about tying for arousal and how to combine shibari and sex.

We will manage both practical and psychological aspects surrounding the topic of sex and shibari. The ties taught during this class are not only chosen out of practical reasons but also with the intention of being erotically interesting in themselves. In other words, this is not just a workshop about “bondage that is easy to fuck your partner in” but the idea is to cater also to those with a sexual interest in the rope play in itself. Apart from going through some specific ties we will talk about different approaches to sex in kinbaku and how one can build up an arousing session. An example is how the aesthetics of the tie play part in attraction and setting the tone of the scene.

Bio:
Dasniya and Tamandua like to explore poetic extremes with ropes. While their background in kinbaku differs a lot they both share a strong interest for the aesthetically creative and emotionally ambiguous side of the practice.
Tamandua is rigger with a wide variety of influences. His style draws heavily on erotically tormenting rope to create visually and emotionally alluring scenes.
Dasniya has done a lot of work and research connecting shibari with fields such as dance and performing arts. She is especially fascinated by the dramatic potential and playful complexity of kinbaku.

**6 hour workshop with room for 4 couples only! **

For registration:
Participants have to register in couples. To make the most out of the workshop you should sign up with a partner whom you are comfortable doing intimate type of rope play with. Riggers need prior experience in shibari/kinbaku. Not all content but some ties will require basic knowledge about suspension to be able to follow.

This regular workshop/lab focusses on kinbaku at intermediate level. Most participants attend weekly so the topics can build progressively.
Starting with a power warm up and demo of my current research, I later give individual feedback as you are tying. Besides updating safety principals like friction or versions of gote (box tie), this class is an environment to meet new styles and rope philosophies. The material contains floor work, dynamic one rope play, and half- or full suspension. We often research tortion-sequences and complex figures in the air.
If you like to share your latest invention you are welcome to throw in ideas :)

My approach melts different styles and teachings for more than 10 years. As rigger I started of learning with Osada Steve, Arisue Go, Kamijoo Saki, Frances d’Ath, Barkas and Kinoko. As model I learned from Kasumi Horai, Akira Naka, Tamandua.

Starting with a dynamic warm up and demonstration, I give individual feedback as you are tying. Besides updating Shibari principals like friction, different versions of column ties, tatkate kote (box tie) and security aspects, it is an environment to meet new styles and rope philosophies. The material contains floor work, one rope play and half- or full suspension. More advanced riggers can develop ‘progressions’ and complex figures in the air step by step. If you like to share your latest trick you are welcome to throw in ideas.

KINBAKU STUDY GROUP WITH TAMANDUA

 

tamandua tying dasniya

Highly recommending this study group at Haus Sommer!

Starting 2nd August 2017
Small group – room for 4 couples only!

This is a biweekly study group for students who already have some experience with kinbaku/shibari from workshops or private tuition. Students should have at least fundamental knowledge of suspension work. If you participated in the past terms regular study group this year this is a suitable continuation course!
As a rigger you will be learning more complicated patterns and shapes, have a bit more pressure to learn how to be able to be smooth, safe and quick as well as apply aquired knowledge to improvise and solve problems while tying. You will learn different ways of tying for and during suspension, both static and dynamic.
As a model/bottom you will learn how to manage a bit more intense ties both on the floor and in the air than during more basic level classes. You will also gain knowledge on active bottoming – to make the experience more pleasurable, safe and beautiful.

For this course you need to register in couples. If you are a rigger who can not come with the same partner each time you can still sign up as long as it is not a new partner each time. This is since I hope to see rope partners develope together – not just the riggers!
There will be 7 class opportunities during the term and you can sign up for 3 or 6 classes at a time.

Dates (every second wednesday 18.30-21.30)
Aug 2, 16, 30
Sep 13, 27
Oct 11, 25

For more info and to apply write to Tamandua or email Tamanduaengstrom@gmail.com

If you are new to shibari, he also teaches a beweekly workshop for beginner level in Moabit.

Hamlet at Xplore 2017

Freitag & Samstag 15.7.2017 um 20-21.30h beim Xplore Festival 2017
-> Alte Börse Marzahn
 

HAMLET, EINE GHOSTSTORY

Ein dramatisch getanztes Kinbakudrama mit Dasniya Sommer und Florian Loycke

Hamlet ist der Held der sich in ausweglosen Situationen immer wieder behaupten kann. Durch Spannungsverlagerung, durch Träumen, durch Variationen seiner psychischen Energie. Auch wenn die Restriktionen immer fieser werden und immer mehr nachgelegt, immer mehr Sinne zugedeckt werden, er findet die kleine Drehung, die Achse auf der er tanzen kann ohne sich selbst aufzugeben, oder indem er sich selber auf und hingibt.Wir wollen erzählen wie er um seine Geliebte Ophelia gekämpft hat und was im Schlafzimmer seiner Mutter geschah. Und wie sich ein Spiel um sein oder nicht sein entspinnt.
Vielleicht ist Hamlet ein Mädchen. Und Ophelia der Geist. Und die alten Freunde sagen die Wahrheit. Und die Stubenfliege kann sprechen. Und was zählt als Beweis für einen Mord oder für die Wirklichkeit? Aber auch: wer manipuliert wen, wer hängt in wessen Netz und kann es einen Sieger geben? Es ist die Geschichte, die passiert, wenn der Vorhang fällt.

Dauer ca 30-40 Minuten.
Produktion: Haus Sommer
