Event Details


There are a whole bunch of options for technically performing suspensions, as in they get the person off the ground, but maybe only for a moment, or only a centimeter, or partly supported on a body/furniture, or using a pulley, or making a rope hammock, or only if the person in ropes flexes to lift off.

This is a class in opposition to the often high demands of suspension, where the goal is to find ways to have the person in ropes not touch the ground without having to get too complicated, strenuous, physically demanding, or pretentious about it.

This class also touches on accessibility – what are some ways of making a suspension that doesn’t require hand strength to hold and lock suspension lines? What about ways of adding extra supports for sore bodies, or suspending without constricting certain areas? Bring questions and queries, there will be space to lab special requests!

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.
