WORKSHOP (reporté) EM & Iseam : transition workshop – jour 1
28/03/2020 @ 11:00 - 18:00
Based in Memphis, Tennesse, EM and Isean have been teaching together for three years. EM has been actively teaching at large events in the USA for 8 years, and isean has been doing so for 4 years.
EM’s began in the « leather boots and whips » BDSM community in the USA, and his method of play still reflects this. Isean (pronounced E-shawn) is a fitness enthusiast and student of multiple disciplines of yoga. A skilled rigger and very experienced bottom, she began with an interest self-tying.
Isean’s style of tying involves a focus on pressure points and manipulation of the body through direct contact to control and to inflict pain. EM’s style involves a heavy fusion of his love for both whips and rope, and his interpretation of Japanese bondage stems from a desire to withdraw submission and highlight beauty through suffering and strain. Isean is more subtle and to her tying is art, trust, sensuality, pain, lust, and more.
As a team they combine to present a blend of these two mindsets, and focus on the experience for both the top and the bottom.
This will be a full weekend workshop. It will feature two days worth of hands-on instuction into the style of rope that -EM- and isean tie, and their methods for achieving engaging positions which focus on connection and the beautiful power exchange that occurs when someone is suffering in their partner’s rope.
We will begin with low level suspensions and partial suspensions. These are often overlooked in the rush to fly, and they offer the largest number of opportunities to interact with your partner physically when you are not moving rope. Lower level tying also presents some of the most interesting opportunities for predicament ties that stress the bottom.
Throughout the weekend we will progress together into more dramatic and higher suspension positions. We will achieve some of these through a series of level adjustments that work the bottom up from the ground, while a couple of them might very well proceed directly from the floor into a strenuous or beautiful suspension, and then transisiton into another pose.
This course is for intermediate level riggers tying a good TK
Both riggers and rope bottoms should be comfortable with suspension.
To follow this course, it is ideal to tye with 10-12 ropes of about 5 or 6 mm diameter preferably in jute.
