About the workshop:
Kinbaku should be a living moment, a living movement. Rigger and Model can be seen as involved in a dance together, where the movement of one will spontaneously move the other. The aim is not to reproduce certain patterns, but to work towards discovering and gaining a better understanding of the principles in order to be able to create and organize your own instant compositions, and to bring life into these compositions, from beginning to end.
The guiding idea for this workshop will be : Movement ! Hoping it will be mental as well as physical. Stillness will not be a goal, but just a suspended moment in our Music.
In studying this, we will explore just how thin the line between spirit and body can be, and maybe to realize they will be no line at all…
With an eye to developing the participants’ flow and improvisational capacities in rope-bondage, we will discuss classical concepts in Japanese culture like Ma, Ma-Ai, Omote-Ura and posture.
The aim of the workshop is to enable the partners to translate in the ephemeral of ropes the energy and sensations they share and discover together.
This workshop is always different and will always use my background in Martial art, Massage (Shiatsu and Thai) and rope technique!
