A Weekend of BonesAndRope

In this weekend, Anatomie Studio founders and owners Fred Hatt & Anna Boness would like to share their ties, their shapes, their logic for building harnesses & playing in the air. This class will be mainly about suspension transitions & predicament play, so if that’s your jam, this one’s for you!

Who can come to this class? Are there pre-requisites?

This class has pre-requisites for riggers and rope bottoms/models – please make sure you meet these before booking to avoid disappointment on the day.

• Completion of ‘Intro to Suspension’ (Course 3) of equivalent gives both riggers and models/bottoms/partners the necessary pre-requisites for this course.

• Riggers should ideally be able to tie a structural 3 rope Takate Kote in under 10 minutes and be comfortable with suspensions & basic transitions.

• Riggers and models/bottoms/partners must know how to check for nerve impingement.

• Ideally pairs must have tied together prior to this class.

• Rope models/bottoms/partners should be able to be tied in a Takate Kote and be very familiar with the differences between nerve and circulation impingement. Models must be able to recognise and communicate signs of nerve impingement to riggers effectively and timely. Models should be able to process pain and take some enjoyment in intense sensations.

What should I bring and what do I wear? We have a communal kitchenette, fridge and microwave, so feel free to bring lunch/snacks. Tea and coffee are free. People usually wear comfortable clothing like yoga or dance attire. We advise against loose fitting clothing and also jeans can sometimes feel a bit restrictive to move around in and difficult to tie on. We have communal ropes if you don’t have your own.

– Their face-up technique for loading ties (TKs, chest harnesses, arm binders) (video tutorial here:https://bonesandrope.com/portfolio/bones-and-rope-face-up-video/) + interesting ways to create shapes in the air and transition with it.
– Fred’s way of building Takate Kote’s for suspension, and he adapts it for different contexts, people, etc. Including tips for comfort/sustainability for different bodies/preferences.
