Event Details

Responsibility is an important concept that needs to be paid attention to in a rope scene, particularly when playing with Semenawa. This is actually the direct translation of the Chinese term for Semenawa ‘责绳’ so it creates an interesting perspective on how Semenawa can be a practice of exploring responsibility; over your own body, limits, actions, and over others.

In this lecture/demonstration, Hua Hua and her model will share the importance of accountability and autonomy when dealing with suffering in rope, ending the class with a demonstration of their own semenawa style.



Format: lecture & demonstration

Minimum Knowledge Level: no prior knowledge needed, prior interest in semenawa is encouraged

What to Bring:

Solo or Partnered: any constellation

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.



hua hua (she/her)

hua hua (she/her) is an artist and Shibari teacher. She is the founder of Borderline Shibari, a platform dedicated to creating a mindful and conscious Shibari community. She began the first public rope art classes in Shanghai, and has held numerous workshops, performances and Shibari events across China. She is now based in Europe and continues to develop Borderline online and offline. She believes that rope bondage is a practice of authenticity. To her, ropes build the bridge between two beings; between interior and exterior and between the elevated and the underground. In addition to her Shibari work, her art work also includes experimental nude photography, physical theatre, installations and she frequently collaborates with other artists to encourage cross-cultural integration. Her artwork is influenced by BDSM, just as her Shibari teaching derives techniques from other disciplines. hua hua's Shibari teaching style is centred around intention, expression and the emotional process of rope. Her work has been featured on various Shibari platforms such as Shibari Study and Queer Rope festival. More about her work can be found on her Patreon:
