Torsion suspensions (suspensions in twisted body positions) offer exciting ways to  expand your range of spatial-aesthetic options and
sensory experiences in the air.  Twisting your suspensions can create intense experiences and change up your suspension repertoire.  In this workshop, we will address the physical components and body mechanics of torsion (torso twisting) in suspension.  We will cover a variety of torsion suspension transitions, including particular suspension techniques and line management techniques for transitioning into and out of torsion positions.  These topics are addressed from both bottoms' and tops' perspectives, with emphasis on choosing and adjusting transitions to work best for individual bodies.

This is an intermediate to advance suspension bondage class. This class is limited to 10 tying pairs.

This workshop will be held in the basement of Gallery Erato, which is accessible only by stairs.

All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.
Cost at the door: $100 (Duo).
No late entry will be allowed due to the intensive nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.

About the Educator:

Parker RopeBoi (fetlife.com/users/55044) is queer, genderqueer rope instructor and performer, who has an international reputation for innovative self-suspensions, highly dynamic suspensions, and quirky sadistic predicaments. Since 2009, Parker has been presenting rope workshops, intensives, and performances across North America and Europe. For Parker, rope is a versatile medium for enabling and disabling corporeal possibilities, encountering and overcoming impasses, instigating intense sensations and pleasures, and suspending bodies in space. Parker respects that everyone is different and that there are no one-size-fits-all ties. Parker strives to foster an inclusive, affirming environment for adults of all bodies, histories, and identifications to learn and enjoy rope. Parker lives in Brooklyn, New York City.
