Hedwig July 14th

About Hedwig

Hedwig is a queer feminist, poly, switch femme, born and raised in Sweden. She moved to London in 2007, returned to Sweden in 2012.

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 a way to gain more body awareness, work on interpersonal communication and offer different routes to pleasure and surrender.

As an educator, she focus on the mutual experience, embracing a inclusive and open atmosphere where the topics at hand are approached both with respect as well as a sense of humour.

As a performer, she invites the audience to become a part of a story that might question some of that which we take for granted, such as what is considered to be beautiful, or the powerful structures in our societies that affect our everyday lives.

Hedwig is a former member of the crew of Peer Rope London, current member of the crew of Peer Rope Malmö, and founding member and grand poobah of Hitchin’ Bitches. Hitchin’ Bitches is an international network for female identified riggers and rope tops with over 40 chapters over the world.

In 2011Hedwig wrote her undergraduate thesis on Shibari, and is currently pursuing an academic career, while being active as a sex educator, activist and generally being a pain in the butt of patriarchy.
