Topic: ‘Contemporary Rope Bondage’

| Date: August 12th 2017 | Event listing HERE

Iris, who is doing a doctoral research projects on Shibari in the UK, will be joining us to share her thoughts and findings on the subject of ‘contemporary shibari’.

“My doctoral project aims to analyse the contemporary cultural practice of rope bondage using a collaborative approach. I am interested in building up a research project focused on the practitioners’ own perspective, looking at how the practice has mutated from Japanese contexts into European contexts, understanding how it is currently evolving, and exploring how those who do rope construct their identities.

“At Anatomie Studio I will talk a little bit about my journey so far, and discuss the findings and frameworks I have come across in (academic) literature. I will explain a little bit what I wish to accomplish by using a collaborative approach, how it works and how I plan to make it happen.”

Come along to this FREE meet, share, listen, ask, let’s discuss!
