This class will focus on the skills involved in tying and bottoming for non-structural suspension. Participants will learn the basics of creating an improvised harness and suspending with it as well as body manipulation. They will also learn the risks and advantages of this style of rope, as well as the anatomical aspects and physical skills involved in bottoming for it. Join Marceline and Anya Demure and create some wild shapes and feelings!
Anya Demure is a rope bondage practitioner, educator, and performer who practices rope primarily through personal kink, as a model and through self tying. She harbors a passion for creating and embodying aesthetically interesting body shapes, and delights in enduring physically challenging rope experiences. For her, rope bondage is endurance, sex, exercise, community, movement, art, collaboration, and mutual experience. She is also dedicated to promoting bottom-inclusive education and presentation, and fostering safe, friendly, and encouraging environments for people to learn rope. She has been fortunate to teach, tie, and be tied in various communities in the US and abroad, but calls Brooklyn home.
Marceline VQ is an internationally recognized shibari artist whose work challenges viewers with aesthetic and technically complex rope work. She engages rope from all perspectivesas a model in her own rope, with other models in her rope, and as a model in others ropeallowing for a deeper understanding of the medium as a creative and connective tool. She adores the sensory experience of being in rope, as well as the idea of becoming human sculpture. Her work engages in conversation with themes from quantitative disciplines including geometry and physics and with themes from qualitative disciplines including analytic philosophy and universal empathy. She has studied with shibari communities across the globe, and is classically trained in visual fine arts.
Marceline works to create rope imagery that is surprising and inventive, and works out of NYC.
