SHIBARI CLASS NOVEMBER

November 22nd, 2022

The course Beginner with Previous Experience is directed at learning the basics of Shibari/Kinbaku technique. We start systematically with efficient handling of body, rope, and safety principles (knots, wrapping and friction). The material contains a wide range of harnesses for floor work. Understanding restriction from the models perspective, and the complex skill set of the rigger, to create erotic phantasies or a meditative tie.

– Please bring soft clothes and ropes if you have.
– It’s a drop in class (you don’t need to register before hand, but send me a short message that you join a few days before)
– If possible I suggest regular practice/participation at the beginning to create a solid technical base.
– You can register alone or with a partner. If you come alone you can pair up with each other, and in case there is an odd number of people we make one trio. If that‘s fine for you it‘ll work out :)
– Regarding the Corona-situation make sure you are testet and/or vaccinated and wear a mask (3G), thanks!!
– Costs 30 Euro per person (in cash or via paypal after the class).

Fleetstreet Residenz

Fleetstreet Theater Dasniya Sommer Choreografie Michael Schuhmacher Meine Damen und Herren -Tanz-Theater Shibari

Mit ihrer ersten gemeinsamen Kollaboration Gluatamat:2 erarbeiten die Berliner Choreographin und Tänzerin Dasniya Sommer und der Hamburger Performer Michael Schumacher ein so persönliches wie sinnliches Duett. Sommers tänzerischer Umgang mit der japanischen Bondagevariante Shibari und Klassischem Ballett trifft dabei auf das virtuose Sprech- und Sprachverständnis des langjährigen Mitglieds der inklusiven Performancegruppe Meine Damen und Herren.

Zusammen kreieren die beiden eine so abstrakte wie düster-humorvolle Choreographie. Verkaufsverpackungen und individuelle Schicksale gesellschaftlich Randständiger werden metaphorisch auf irritierende Weise verknüpft. Bewusst spielen die beiden mit einem individuellen Verständnis von Zeit. Der zusammen gesponnene Erzählfaden gibt den Takt ihres tänzerischen Rhythmus vor. Zärtliche Shibari Meditationen wechseln sich ab mit unterspannten Crip Time Duetten und absurden Ritualen.
Parallel entsteht aus großformatigen Drucken, Bambusstäben und Juteseilen eine begehbare Installation, deren grelle Ästhetik gleichermaßen mit kapitalistischem Genussversprechen und familiärer Geborgenheit spielt.

Ihre Abschlusspräsentation im Fleetstreet Theater am Mittwoch 29. Juni 2022 um 19.30 Uhr. Die Bar ist ab 19 Uhr geöffnet!

Workshop: Die Shibari Experience (Hamburg)

Dienstag 21. Juni 2022

Während ihrer Fleetstreet Residenz bietet Dasniya Sommer einen offenen Shibari/ Bondage Workshop für interessierte Einsteiger* innen an. In dem zweistündigen Kurs werden technische Grundlagen vorgestellt und miteinander ausprobiert. Im Fokus stehen erste Erfahrung mit den Seilen, ein effizientes body-handling, Sicherheitsprinzipien wie Reibung und Seilspannung und intuitive Kommunikation.
Darauf aufbauend werden gemeinsam klassische Ober- und Unterkörper-Harnesse erstellt. Gemeinsam reflektiert die Gruppe die emotionale Ebene des Shibar, lernt Rollenspielvarianten (von dominant bis submissiv) kennen und bespricht die Rolle der inneren Haltung innerhalb eines zu schaffenden emotionalen Schutzraums.
Seit über zehn Jahren praktiziert und unterrichtet Dasniya Sommer Shibari/Bondage Workshops u.a. beim ImPulsTanz Festival Wien, im Queer Art Studio Berlin oder an der Kunsthochschule Braunschweig. Technisch ist sie sowohl mit dem fesselnden als auch dem Part des gefesselt Werdens vertraut und vermittelt beide Perspektiven aus ihrer langjährigen Erfahrung sowohl als sogenannte Rigger*in und als Bondage Model.

Datum: Dienstag 21. Juni 2022 Zeit: 18-20 Uhr
Gebühr: 20€ p.P.

Performance: flux nX cusp

By Gestalta and Dasniya Sommer

Opening night: IN EXCESS

“In Excess” understands itself as a mental image, a template for interpreting connection, exploring power relations and the sensory experience of our present through BDSM. Curated by Creamcake and happening as part of the seventh 3hd edition, called “Power Play”, the group exhibition features nine artists, collectives and collaborations who negotiate convention through the consensual practice of sadomasochism and play. Running at Park Center Treptow from October 2 to 31, it fearlessly embraces taboos in sexuality, sharing a fascination with authority and the desire for transgression and contradiction, as well as a longing for a loss or conscious relinquishment of control.

Preparing ropes for the overture of Liz Rosenfeld’s and Rodrigo Garcia Alves’ current project at Sophiensaele.

DANCE/PERFORMANCE
This hospice is a dune, a neighborhood, an ocean, a meal, a club, an orgy, a cinema, a cruising ground, a long flight, and a lifelong embrace. This hospice is us, them, ours, no ones and yours. This hospice is unknown, and will continue to change.

In their first duet for the stage, Rodrigo Garcia Alves and Liz Rosenfeld explore their desire to understand and create their future hospice together. For this, they drag objects, stories, projections, fantasies, and experiments crafting future worlds for each other through experimental dance, text and video practices. Hailing from Brazil and the United States, Rodrigo Garcia Alves and Liz Rosenfeld met in Berlin almost a decade ago, and began to collaborate in their desires, experiences and stories connected to a queer position on death, dying, end-of-life care. What are the possibilities during this period of life regarding support for queer kin and families who are not related? How do we want to be seen and perceived in this vulnerable phase of life?
Together, they expanded these questions and met with different kinds of artistic practitioners who work with death in both pragmatic and creative ways: a palliative doctor, a death doula, a choir director, a bondage expert and a tattoo healer, among others. From these conversations Rodrigo Garcia Alves und Liz Rosenfeld have built their current hospice, this duet for the present.
