Shibari has much appeal, and one of the most interesting is that it offers a chance to travel through our consciousness, carried away by the experience of being tied. The intense sensations that are transmitted during the course of a session or scene, the restrictions in movement, breathing, and the control of our own body, the embarrassment, the abandonment…all of this can transport us to states that usually remain unexplored. In this workshop we’ll look at several ways to induce trance by combining the pressure of the ropes while controlling rhythm, space and movement.
Bondage scholar and trainer, he has attended classes with the best masters in this discipline and he applies his experience in the artistic performances, the photographic works and the therapeutic use with his only tool: the ropes. He has exhibited his work in performances and workshops for years all over Europe.
Throughout these years that he has been tying, he has gathered hundreds of experiences and has reflected about the meaning that shibari – a concept inherited from Japanese culture – can have in our western space and time.
During his public appearances he tries to convey rapport and intensity, to always build exciting moments, filled with strength and sensuality.
I was born in Barcelona in 1983 and between 2014 and 2016 I made a brief incursion into artistic modelling. It was through the photographic project “Shibari Experience” that I met Alberto No Shibari, who brought me the opportunity to fully explore the world of ropes and to start collaborating in courses, talks, photo sessions and performances.
By the end of 2017 I joined NoShibari Lab as a model and rigger, beginning an artistic and learning project in constant evolution in which I walk my own way, deconstructing what I’ve learnt to create new forms of teaching, communicating and tying.
