The Soap Box April: Circus meets Shibari!

Hi all,

Our next Soap Box night is taking place on April 1st and we’ll be marrying shibari with other performative arts such as circus and ballet!

The first performer has been announced: GLÜ WÜR is a Chilean artist who lives in Barcelona, where she conducts various studies, the practice of shibari mixed with acrobatic aerial being one of her specialisations.

See here for a video of her work.

“Training and performing with ropes has brought me to many people. Connecting in a different way to what people imagine about bondage. For me it is a very sensual art, rather than sexual; emotional nonverbal communication that delivers confidence through being tied up. Bonding with my play partners is a very enriching experience, and when practicing self bondage or self suspension the adrenaline is so nice, finding control over the pain.”

Her work has been seen in Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, London, San Francisco/CA and Santiago/Chile.

GLÜ WÜR will be performing a new variation on her show ‘Bag’ that she’s developing for The April Soap Box.

“‘Bag’ is a self suspension about non identity. Stereotypes that tend to pigeonhole people in a certain prejudices. This performance is reminder that every human being is unique and unrepeatable.”
