Artist

Life is about movement.
Immobility is but a state of movement
.

And stillness becomes the greatest movement,
where we become fully conscious.

Performer

An artist has to be a warrior, has to have this determination and has to have the stamina to conquer not just new territory, but also conquer himself – and his weaknesses. It doesn’t matter what kind of work you are doing as an artist. The most important is from what state of mind you are doing what you’re doing.

Here and now: deal with whatever is happening in the present moment. Breath, Feel, Think, Sense, Guess, and Act! It is not about skills… or maybe the actual skills stem from a very wide range of practices, far away from any rope practice. Playing with intimacy, people, questions acquired or learned, taking a risk… In fact, just being fully present. It’s about performing with people and rope: it could be a public event or a private session.

But it’s always fully human !

Presenter & Educator

Kinbaku is an art and a discipline. It is deep, an internal research that goes far beyond a couple of patterns and safety tips.

With more than 20 years of practice and 4 years of study in Tokyo, I would like to invite you into my way of doing rope, with the intention of helping you to discover your own sensibility and practice involving rope.

The goal is to make your relationship to rope unique, for the person tying as well as for the person being tied!
