Privacy Policy Cookie Policy About me - Andrea Ropes

Andrea Ropes is a performer and an international shibari teacher.
Born in Modena, Italy, he began his journey on the ropes in 2006, stumbling over a photo and remaining fascinated immediately.
Subsequently, he began his studies of this art form learning various techniques and styles that characterize it, initially as a self-taught, later to class with great masters such as Kanna Nawashi (who he considers his main teacher and inspiration) Haruki Yukimura Hajime Kinoko, Bob Ropemarks, Otonawa, Bingo Shigonawa, etc.

At the beginning of 2015, with 9 years of experience, he decided to pursue a professional career, traveling and bringing his work as an educator and showman around Italy and Europe. His style is mainly characterized by great dynamism, artistic expressiveness, and cleanliness of the technique. As an educator, he stands out for his adaptability to the needs of the learners he has before him and for the meticulous care of the technique, especially regarding the tensions. Of great importance are his studies and his continuous research on communication through the ropes, an essential principle of this discipline.
