THE CONCEPT OF PLAY - Lief Bound and Icarus

Rope is hard. Rope makes our brains think so much. We focus so much on the tie that we forget how to be playful in rope. We get caught up in patterns and structure that we forget about discovery and collaboration. In this class we will learn rope all over again. No rules. Like a preschooler with a box of crayons we are going to color outside the lines. We are going to explore ways to incorporate play back into our rope so that we can connect our partners in the moments. And bottoms we will learn to influence that fun and collaborate with our partners to tie our bodies in new and exciting ways. After leaving this class rope will make you smile rather than make you frustrated.

Skill Level: Beginner. Prerequisites: non-collapsing single column ties. Materials needed: Rope - 8 to 12 hanks of rope. Material doesn't matter. 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."
