advanced kinbaku lab in february

Tuesday mornings, February: 6,13,20,27, 2018
Hours: 10am–12am

This weekly class/lab focusses on kinbaku at intermediate-advanced level.

Most participants attend regularly so topics can progressively build. Starting with a power warm up and demo of my current material, I give individual feedback as you are tying. The material contains floor work, dynamic rope play, and half- or full suspension. We often research torsion-sequences or more complex transitions in the air. Its an environment to meet new styles and rope philosophies, and if you like to share your latest invention feel welcome to throw in ideas :)

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

Haus Sommer is a small dojo located in Uferhallen Kulturwerkstatt in Berlin-Wedding, with 7 suspension-points, bamboo suspension, dance floor, and tea kitchen. Please bring comfortable clothes and ropes if you have.

If you are a beginner and still want to participate, its possible as a model.
(There is a new beginner class in the evening!)
With previous experience you can drop in spontaneously. Please send a short message to  +49 174 393 70 49.

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.

We investigate traditional techniques at intermediate level. Most people attend weekly so that the topics can build progressively.
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.

My own teachers over the last ten years were: Kasumi Horai, Kamijoo Saki, Osada Steve, Arisue Go, Tamandua Ropë, Barkas or Kinoko.

KINBAKU STUDY GROUP WITH TAMANDUA

dasniya paris

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.
