Transitions on the floor
Alle er bekendt med overgangssekvenser i luften, men vi vil udforske overgangen mellem forskellige positioner på gulvet ved hjælp af kropsmanipulation og håndtering. Dette kan være nyttigt, når du vil lege med reb, men ikke har en svær pointe, eller når du blot ønsker at nyde intimiteten og intensiteten, som en gulvscene kan rumme.
Erfarings niveau for deltagere: du skal være i stand til at binde en overkrops harness.
Hvad skal du medbringe: reb, en partner. Vi kan partner folk op på dagen, hvis du er tryg ved dette.
Everyone is familiar with transitioning sequences in the air but we‘ll be exploring transitioning between different positions on the floor using body manipulation and handling. This might come in handy when you want to play with rope but don‘t have a hard point or when you simply want to enjoy the intimacy and intensity that a floor scene can hold.
Requirements for participants: you should be able to tie a single column tie and be somewhat familiar with frictioning
What to bring: rope, a partner. We can partner people up on the day if you are comfortable with this.
Noctuelle & Yourknots
Anna Noctuelle discovered Shibari in 2004 and has worked with this art form as a model, performer and teacher across Europe and for internationally known riggers. With her background in classical ballet and as a yoga student, Anna Noctuelle has exceptional body awareness skills in ropes and suspension. Her background in dance and her interest in Buddhism and meditation also influence her aesthetic and philosophical approach to Shibari. She works with many different styles but her emotional home is Semenawa and Naka Ryu. For her, Kinbaku is a practice that can teach you life, vision and maybe even wisdom.
Fetlife: Noctuelle (not active user)
Nik Yourknots has been interested in rope bondage for the last 6 years. His unique and eclectic style, with a focus on aesthetics and intention, stems from his training in three art institutions across Russia and the United Kingdom and the teachings of a variety of bondage artists from Europe, America and Asia. Nik’s versatile work ranges from photo and video to performance and installation art. His interests reach beyond bondage to include poetry, dance, sound and video design, all of which feed into his work as a shibari artist. Nik’s work has been featured in print, film, and events in the UK and internationally.
