Play With String
– An Introduction to Rope Bondage
Danscentrum Syd | Bergsgatan 29, Malmö
Saturday 4 June | 13.00–16.00
Workshop w/ Ziggi Willpower
Not included in the festival ticket, separate ticket required
In this class we spend an afternoon exploring rope bondage, in a playful and open setting. The focus is communication, experience and emotion – not pretty patterns or complex knots! We do physical experiments with and without rope to learn more about power, sensuality and play and how we can use them creatively.
This is a class where we work in pairs of two, so come with a friend/partner you will work with during the class. You do not need any experience or equipment, just come dressed in comfortable clothes.
Ziggi Willpower (he/him) is based in Malmö, Sweden and has been exploring rope since 2016. His favourite thing is to be tied by others, but he also self-ties and ties other people. Ziggi's approach to rope is informed by his background in drag and theatre, and by his experiences as a transgender person. He sees rope as a medium for transformation and play, where we have the opportunity to create new rules for gravity, sensuality and power.
