Semi-suspensions for pain and pleasure

During this two-day workshop Tamandua, joined by partner Briki will teach some of his favorites ties for half-suspension. Based on their approach to tying as an erotic and sadomasochistic artform the ties for this class are developed for their sensual beauty as well as playfully tormenting qualities.

When tying semi-suspension shapes we try to play with the dynamic between the pull of the suspension lines and the push against the ground. Both capable of creating support on one hand and stress on the other, depending on the balance of the tie. This often results in a predicament situation for the person in the ropes, as they attempt to lean into one or the other.

During the workshop we will learn about:

The building blocks of each tie and how they work together with the floor to lock body into shape
Understanding how to thoughtfully balance suspension load to control the intensity of the tie
Rope pressure and postural pressure as two different types of torment in semenawa ties
Guidance for topping and bottoming in this style of tying according to the approach of Tamandua and Briki

Horizontal bamboo will be used as suspension points. Both shapes using TK/gote and shapes using other ways of tying the upper body will be demonstrated.
