About the weekend

Sensorial studies of rope- exploratory rope practices

We move through the world with our senses. What we can see, touch, feel, hear, smell & taste is not just an integral part of how we human, but also deeply tied to how we can understand each other and become interaction.

This will be a weekend where we will explore how we can feel; feel in relation to ourselves, our rope practices and our communities around us. The rope practice will be centered around how sensation can be an integral part in both developing but also guiding our practices. Through experimenting with our senses, taking the time to dig into how we see, how we feel, how we restrict & play we can find new perspectives and nuances in our rope practices.

This exploration will take place through various exercises that involves partial suspension, head & facebondage, movement & bodymanipulation, time for reflexion & practice, problem solving and much more.

Pre-requisites:

Solid one column ties, chest/gote harnesses, ability to secure suspension lines, ability to recognise nerve impingement, willing & comfortable being close to partner. "

About Hedwig:

Hedwig love to explore the space where bodies are reaching out and listen through creativity & desire. Rope has proved itself to be especially useful for this practice. She is a queer feminist, switchy, sadistic femme, born, raised and currently residing in Sweden.

Hedwig is passionate about communication, rope bondage, safer sex and consent culture, about redressing notions of power, physical sensations, vulnerability, dominance and submission, gender and communities working together. She hopes to bring rope bondage to a larger audience as she believe it has the capacity to create ways to communicate, both with emotional and physical sensation, offering routes to pleasure & a playful exploration of desire, creativity, surrender & movement. As an educator, Hedwig focus on the mutual experience, embracing an inclusive and open atmosphere where the topics at hand are approached both with respect as well as a sense of humor. She strives towards creating integrated learning spaces, where she hopes that her experience as a switch can bring multiple perspectives to everyone attending on either side of the ropes.

Hedwig is a former member of the crew of Peer Rope London, current member of the crew of Peer Rope Malmö and Hitchin’ Bitches Oresund, as well as founding member and grand poobah of Hitchin’ Bitches. She is also a founding member of Ropework.Org, a meta event for rope educators, performers and organisers. She has taught & performed at various venues across Europe & North America since 2011 while also running the Rope Attic in Malmo (Sweden) a space for learning & sharing rope.

She wrote her undergraduate thesis on Shibari, and is currently active as a sex educator, activist and generally being a pain in the butt of patriarchy.
