Event Details

 

A poetic journey to Barkas’ metaphorical city of Kinbaku. Barkas and Addie are picking up the participants and guide them through the many meanings rope can be filled with. We discuss communication via ropes, movement with ropes, and space in the context of ropes. This journey includes very simple techniques and more elaborate ones alike. Participants will get a deep insight in the philosophy and technique of Barkas’s and Addie’s work. We encourage all levels to participate and not to be afraid of challenges.

Teaching Consent:
Everyone is unique. We will show exercises that work for us. If you can’t, for any reason, practice an exercise, let us know and we can offer a workaround.
