Naka Akira is our star guest and more from surprise ones from Japan. As always, we have performers from all around the world and some old favourites from previous years.
Naka Akira 4-day master class: 1st – 4th October
The 4-day course has sold our. Sorry, too late. I will ask Naka-san if he will also be doing private tuition.
Saki Kamijoo 1-day classes: 1-2 October
Kamijoo Saki, the fastest rope-slinger in the east, who has been amazing audiences worldwide with her lightning fast tying and flow, will be holding two one-day classes on 1 and 2 Oct after the London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage. This is an unique experience to have the opportunity to learn from a female Japanese rope artist and will no doubt provide a new perspective. It will also be of special interest to those who wish to expand their creativity with the less formal Osaka style.
I have been talking with Raj, my Man in Japan who’s translating for Saki-san, about her classes:
“What can be expected from the class – Saki has what probably should be termed these days an Osaka style of tying, very free-form and less rigid then the “Tokyo”-style most are used to. We were talking about the workshop last night, the jist of the conversation was that there are variations in almost every tie, and so being aware of the variation might give give people ideas on how to vary their ties as well (would this be creativity?). She was thinking that she would spend some time describing the fundamentals, suspensions and then transitions. There are some tricks that she uses to do the fast rope, and to improve flow, and she’ll point them out as well.”
I don’t have a specific agenda for the classes but the days will follow on from each other and the second day will be more advanced. She will adjust the level according to the participants but some basic suspension experience is assumed.
