Event Details

The focus of my rope style is the translation of simple, foundational techniques into feeling and mood.

Both the 1-hour performance and 1-hour workshop will focus on this. Minimal focus on aesthetic, with a more liberal and playful approach to intimacy, sharing rope without the explicit definition and command of power often present in rope. While learning knots, safety considerations, and other technical details are important, mood, creativity, and expression aren’t always at the forefront of teaching spaces.

Finally, I’m a Black, African person and my rope practice embraces my local culture and is not centered around Japan or European values, motifs or dogma. This will be a considerate deviation from the usual.



Format: hands-on workshop/performance

Minimum Knowledge Level: There are no prerequisites, however, knowledge of tension reversal and maintenance, column ties and safety around rope would facilitate easier learning in the attendees.

What to Bring: Your own rope kit, comfortable clothing, water

Solo or Partnered: all constellations welcome

Class recording: yes

This class will be recorded (only the facilitator, not the participants) and is available for ticket holders for 30 days after the event.
