Río will tell us about how the specific context, geography, race, gender, and brutal violence cross with his rope practice and how he has found ropes to be a tool for the defense and recovery of people’s bodies by feeling and filling them with pleasure, and eroticism.

Río (he/him)

Tying most of the time and sometimes tied, began his practice with ropes 5 years ago, when attended a face-to-face class and learned the knots but did not enjoy the space, too heterosexual and machista. Since then, began to form groups with women and sex-gender dissidents where he shared everything he was learning by taking online courses. Has a project in México called 'Jorogumo Shibari' and with his partner (Ixchel), do performances, workshops and different types of events related to ropes, always for queer people.
