open shibari training april

April: Tuesday 3,10,17,24, 2018, 10-12am

This new class is open to all levels of Shibari/Kinbaku. Its an open training space.
Because tying is needs repetition. To become firm in guiding a partner through a rope session there are many skills to practice. Also the model makes an in depth learning process.
The first hour of the workshop we do q&a and I will answer specific technical question. For example if you always wanted to clarify for example how to secure suspension lines, repeat TK or go through the basics. For new input, I will demo one classical, more advanced figure. The second hour is devoted to your own training.

performance nun on the moon

 

 

Some weeks ago in Paris at La Gaite Lyrique.  A calm audience. Some curious, but mostly careful. Interesting how it was different from Lyon last year. More a party crowed during a music festival. Then it was late into the evening, people got more daring, or drunk. Not that I suggest, but the more courageous the audience ties me up, the more fun and somewhat sadistic moments. Which I think is interesting in this set up. People seem to really enjoy drastic ties and seeing me struggle.
In Paris people were beautiful, just shyer. Maybe the official institutional sight sets a vibe somebody said. I liked the purity. Surely, I keep fond memories of those five shows. Everyone, especially  the technical and production team was so supportive of Micha and me.
