Facilitator

Barkas & AddieBarkas and Addie are Vancouver-based rope educators who teach and perform world-wide. Their style is characterized by a focus on the process, interaction, and emotion of a rope scene. Together they run TheSpace2, Vancouver’s first dedicated rope space. Barkas is a bondage artist and writer. They have developed the “Interview Metaphor” as a way of understanding rope bondage and placing focus on the person in ropes, “Ranboo” which is a highly dynamic and stormy way of doing and thinking Kinbaku, as well as the “City of Kinbaku”, a poetics of Kinbaku. Addie is a switch and self-suspension enthusiast. She organizes regular workshops on dynamic self-suspension and versatile education both, for beginners and technically advanced. When co- teaching she focuses on bottoming information and discourse.

Event Details

Barkas’ and Addie’s performance is not a show, not a choreography. Together, they want to take the audience and move them to a totally other space where their hearts, with all their memories, their fears, and their love for each other are laying open in front of everyone who wishes to see.

When Barkas and Addie are tying for an audience, they try to tie with an audience. Thus, their performances are never rehearsed nor is there an idea about what should happen. Come and witness a rope scene from the bottom of their hearts.

After the performance you can engage with and enjoy the art of shibari at our mixed bondage jam. No matter your role or knowledge level, we invite you to join like-minded people for an evening of engaged and fun shibari. Tonight we also offer you some amazingly chill live music.

Karada House offers you a lot of space in its “old stable hall” that has a range of hanging points pre-installed. You just need to bring your ring. We also offer some spaces with pre-installed bamboo. But that is not all. For those of you who’d like to engage in the art and delicacies of floor work we have dedicated “the pink room” solely for that purpose.

We also provide a chill-out area and drinks for you.
