Event Details

Death as an alchemic process imposes the experience of stillness, silence, and emptiness. It carries us through a dark path of loss and hopelessness that can be extremely hard to hold and navigate and at the same time an opportunity to introduce the value of that which has been lost and rediscover it within ourselves.

Gravare, the Latin word for grieve is a concept rooted in the idea of burden and weight much like the subjective experience during a loss. Roser will represent these ideas and feelings in a personal, intimate live performance through self-tying and the exploration of movement within the range allowed by the weight of a floating hashira, with the hope to discover that which will enable us to compost the old to grow the new.

Roser (she/her)

Roser from Venezuela, living in Barcelona, Spain, found Shibari back in 2020 as a way of creative expression, she has also been creating artworks with photography and drawing over a decade now. Her short and intense journey in Shibari has taken place so far at Espacio Nos in Barcelona learning and building community. Besides studying regularly with Pauline Massimo, she also attended workshops by international presenters such as Nawashi Kanna & Kagura, Barkas & Addie, Tamandua & Briki and Sophia Rose. Over this time she has had the chance to explore ropes as a rigger, as a rope bottom and self tying, in which she finds herself able to broaden her artistic self, experimenting with movement and body expression through performance at Espacio Nos in Barcelona, Madrid and even online for Knotty Portugal. Her background as psychologist and psychotherapist working with trauma and violence, has led her to be very active and passionate about educating and facilitating on safe(r) rope practices and consent in her local community.
