SINN UND SEIL – SHIBARI ROPE MAKES SENSE

A Workshop by Kristina Marlen during the 9th annual PornFilmFestival Berlin

Shibari is the art of Japanese rope bondage, an erotic and ritualized way of tying. A form of art is is for sure, since highly complex ties seem to be reserved for experts.
With due respect to Japanese tradition this workshop aims to enable participants to develop a rather anarchic approach to rope leading to inspiring, effectice and sensual results within a short period of time. The most important point here is to stay connected to one’s own body as well as with the body of the rope partner since at the end the end of the day rope is just an extension of the rigger’s energy.
The workshop will use methods of bodywork, teaching of ropework and basic Shibari ties as well as improvisation techniques.
