This will be an intense weekend for both models and riggers. A lot to look forward to!

Kirigami & Tenshiko

Kirigami and Tenshiko are a couple both in ropes and in life.
They have been teaching and performing in different European cities since 2012. In 2016 they opened School of Rope Milano, where they teach traditional bondage three times a week to local students and foreign visitors.

Their rope is inspired by the most traditional Japanese style bondage, with an eclectic approach encompassing both private sessioning and photography.

Program

Workshop
We will approach traditional semenawa from a practical and theoretical point of view, understanding the iconic patterns of the style, and the philosophy behind them.

The Tk
We will analyse a stemless gote, understanding its structure and historical development. The differences with an original Japanese TK will be described both from a technical and philosophical point of view.

Basic patterns
Some iconic patterns will be taught and put in use. Both floorwork and simple suspensions will be part of the schedule.
Each basic pattern will be used to teach a skill that can be carried over and used in several other ties.

Variations
Depending on the level of participants, some basic ties will be variated and transformed into new shapes. Variations are didactically skill-oriented, and participants will improve rope and body handling while experimenting with new ties.

Dresscode – GEEN

Er is GEEN dresscode voor dit event. Nochtans…

  • Als jij diegene bent die bondeert, draag iets waar je je comfortabel in voelt. Een jeans en een T-shirt zijn prima.
  • Als jij diegene bent die gebondeerd wordt, draag iets comfortabel. Het is wel handig als je iets ‘strakker’ aandoet: losse kleding of kleding met veel ‘franjes’ aan hebben de vervelende neiging om in de weg te zitten tijdens het bonderen.

    OH! Vergeet ik daar toch bijna de grote ‘moet ik naakt zijn?’ vraag! We gaan dit eenvoudig houden: NEE, JE HOEFT NIET NAAKT TE ZIJN! EN OOK NIET TOPLESS!!! Maar wat als ik dat nu echt graag wil om naakt of topless te zijn tijdens het event? Da’s geen probleem. Jij beslist. Zolang jij je maar comfortabel voelt.
