SHOWING YOU THE ROPES, MINE.
If you show someone the ropes, you show them how to do a particular job or task. In this workshop, Andres Ropes will show you the meaning behind his style and how he uses his ropes. His style is mainly characterized by great dynamism, artistic expressiveness, and cleanliness of the technique. But he also likes to play rough during his intimate sessions, and predicament ties are an important part of the game.
- Tk – My way – the way I do it and why, explained step by step and with some exercises in suspension
- Introducing some predicaments – Let’s play with some shapes challenging our partners
- Strappado – My way again – How I build the structure and how I adapt to my partner’s needs. Then exercises to use the tie in suspension
- second part about predicament – More shapes, more pain, more fun
This is not a basic workshop and participants should be confident tying tk, tk frictions, and placements. They also should know how to tie secure suspension lines. Models must know the difference between blood compression and nerve impingement and how to handle their body during suspension.
