Sobre del evento

Talk and demonstration Tying in motion with Valentina Gaia Lops, Pauline Massimo and Inma Sáez.

About the event:

This talk, demo and community performances is geared for anyone interested in the intersection between Shibari and movement. We will talk about how to bring dynamic creativity to the tying process in a safe and intuitive way, playing with the possibilities of movements and body restrictions on the ground and in suspension. We will be discussing the subject of the perception of our body, of conscious listening to the other person, of communication through the directional touch and of everything that is part of non-verbal language in relation to movement.  At the beginning of the event, we will have a talk about the intersections of the movement in the Shibari, either tying, being tied or self tying accompanied by several practical demonstrations of the theories explained, and at the end there will be two performances that represent the general concept of that event . In this event you will come to listen to the talk, ask questions and comment, and watch the demonstrations and performances. If you are interested in delving into this topic in more depth, we recommend the Movement Composition Laboratory workshop with Valentina Gaia Lops on August 18, where exercises and practical work will be done that you will listen to and see in this talk and demonstration.
