NIKOKBK (he/him)

NIKOKBK (he/him) is a rope artist based in Lyon (France). It's been 5 years since NIKO began to practice Shibari properly with the aim of personal renewal. From a need to learn to let go with the taste for artistic expression, NIKO appropriated shibari to express himself. He shares this path with RAPH (he/him/they/them) and for the last 4 years they have formed a duet that has naturally evolved from learning together many worhshops in Europe to performing and teaching. NIKO's love of live performance and the constraints of this environment have led him to develop a fast, efficient style. Liking to get out of his confort zone, he works with different materials to add extures of his scenes.

RAPH (he/they)

RAPH has been practising shibari as a switch for over 4 years in Lyon, France. He sees this art form as an inexhaustible source of exchange, play and connection. With the daily integration of yoga and dance practice, he made it as part of a global approach of body exploration. With NIKO as a rope partner for the past 4 years, they form a duet that has led them to learn, teach and perform.
