Event Details

 

Learn all the essential skills to move your tying from the floor to the air and start doing rope suspensions. We will cover stable harnesses for different body types, suspension line lifting and locking, body mechanics in the air, and suspension safety. We will explore both partial and full suspension, and if you’re insecure about your skills you can stay partly on the floor for the whole weekend.

The workshop includes Ceci’s arms front harness and a box tie (not mandatory, you can stay with the arms front harness) as well as a thigh harness and the basket tie. We will work on side suspension and on a vertical Z shape. We will also explore movement-based partial suspension and restricting the body with the help of suspension points or other steady structures.

This workshop is suitable for both people who are ready to get started with suspension and those who want to solidify their skills on the topic.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid, queer, intersex, asexual, aromantic, agender.

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
