Event Details

Pauline and Roser will share their experience of tying in movement: Restricted Movements. The fine line of restricting the body while it can move in many different ways creating an improvised dance between two dancing bodies restricted with a rope/s.

Pauline is experienced with different types of dances, movement research, and creative body expression, and they have been mixing artistic movements with Shibari since their beginning when discovering the Japanese practice.
And Roser has a short but going deeper experience with dances like Contact Improv and Butoh where she is connecting more with her own body without having any previous experience all her life, finding new ways of expression besides her work as a photographer and Shibari.

Both will share some technical components to help and guide attendees to play with, show some improvisation guidelines to work around on their own way when practicing, and will demo all those concepts all together at the end. The class is practical for all levels of tying/being tied, all bodies types, body mobility, and movement backgrounds(or lack of). They will offer a Q&A chat at the end with participants.

Pauline Massimo

Pauline Massimo is an interdisciplinary human originally from Brazil and based in Barcelona, which mostly focused in perform, teach, photograph and organise Shibari related events professionally, but with experience background in circus, yoga, dance, plastic and conceptual art, and more. They started into Shibari around mid-2012 and since then was a non-stop journey in self-discovery and learning process. They have been into a vast number of workshops and have equally experienced as a rope model, rigging and self-tying. Pauline is educated and interested in the broader range that Shibari can provide as a practice, like classic Japanese style as more contemporary mixed styles, they are mostly interested in the mental and physical challenge that this practicum can offer as much as the challenge of creating experiences that adapt for different tastes and capabilities.
