Event Details


Floor work in rope bondage has become somewhat synonymous with terms like connection, communication, and eroticism. While these are certainly valid and enjoyable pursuits, they are not the only options, and questioning their meaning and application offers new ways of interacting with floor work as a concept.

In this two-part workshop, Barkas and Addie deconstruct common terms and techniques associated with tying on the ground. This deconstruction does not mean the demolition of certain approaches to floor work, but rather an expansion and investigation of possibilities. Floor work does not, for example, require participants to sit on the floor, nor does it require proximity.


Part I: September 11th, 2021, 7-10 pm CET (Berlin time)

In the first part, we will introduce a few concepts as well as techniques and patterns useful for tying on the ground. The concept and implementation of spatial awareness will play a crucial role.


Part II: September 18th, 2021 7-10 pm CET (Berlin time)

Part two then expands on the concept of spatial awareness. With the help of some sequences, we will explore timing, subtlety, balance, and creativity.
