Zor Neurobashing & Margout Darko // // 12:30 am – 3:30 pm Suspension Room
Language: English
Level: Upper intermediate

In this workshop we will explore one of the most important concepts to understand Shibari and Japanese eroticism: Shuchinawa. Shuchinawa is the feeling of shame, and at the same time excitement, that is generated in the person tied after enjoying something that is not supposed to be liked while being observed. Starting from classical and mostly floorwork and partial based ties and shapes, we will use ropes creatively to expose the person tied and generate shame in them. We will also work on verbal humiliation (kotobazeme), body management, expression of emotions, predicaments, active dialogue through ropes and the big importance of the third spectator in the bondage session.This is a workshop heavily focused on the models as we will explore their deep emotions together and embrace them.
Requirements:

  • To have solid tension, perfect single column and good rope handling.
  • Knowing classic one and two ropes patterns and having experience establishing safe suspension lines.
  • Switching roles won’t be allowed so you must come with defined roles of rigger-model.
  • You will need a minimum set of 6-7 jute ropes that are between 7 and 8 meters long.
  • We do recommend to avoid “yoga and sports” clothing but bring what you feel comfortable with.
