EXPOSURE AND CLOSURE - Lief Bound and Icarus

Have you looked at a photo of a person exposed in rope? Have you wanted to get someone to that vulnerable spot or how it must feel like to be that vulnerable? In this class we will explore the physical and psychological ins and outs of exposure rope on the ground. How to tie exposing rope, how can we create these spaces of trust, and how can we begin to open up to more intense scenes of exposure. And once we have taken someone apart, how do we put them back together? In this class we will also discuss ways of aftercare and healing for exposure rope.

Skill Level: intermediate. Prerequisites: non-collapsing single column ties and general rope safety knowledge. Materials needed: Rope - 8 to 12 hanks of jute or hemp. You can use synthetic fiber ropes however, I cannot vouch for how it will hold with clothing. Cutting Tool - Make sure you bring a cutting tool for safety. If you do not have a cutting tool, you will not be able to participate in the exercises.
