Traditional Rope Aesthetics: the Use of Shapes, Space and Balance with Subay



VoxBody is thrilled at the wonderful and unexpected opportunity to welcome Subay back to the studio for an evening class!

Students will be working on bamboo points, so tying spots are limited!

Subay will share ideas around two classic kinbaku shapes, and ways in which students can explore space, balance, emptiness, symmetry & assymmetry to focus on both aesthetics and the bottom's experience in the rope.

There will be time for discussion, demo and hands-on tying and exploration.

Students should have proficiency in tying, and being tied in, a TK/gote, and confident in their suspension practices. Students will be tying on bamboo points; experience in locking off on bamboo is recommended.

*PLEASE NOTE: Subay has a lot to share with us in this class and three hours are going to fly by! We are planning to start at 7pm sharp. We will open doors at 6:30pm so attendees have time to settle in. Please plan your travel time accordingly, we will be ready to dive in promptly on the hour!

About the presenter:

Subay is a Shibari artist and founder of Kokoro Studio based in Hong Kong.
Subay was first introduced to Shibari eight years ago when she was fascinated by its
aesthetics, eroticism and emotions. She spent the first few years exploring and learning
the different styles from several well-respected nawashi in Japan. In 2014, she met and
was deeply inspired by Yukimura Haruki. Afterwards, she dedicated herself to the study
of traditional Japanese style. In 2016, Subay met Naka Akira sensei and chose to focus
her study on sensei’s style of semenawa. She continues to explore her own style of
semenawa which is both feminine and inclusive.
In March 2018, Subay had the honour of performing at Onna Matsuri (おんあ祭り) in
Tokyo. In November 2018, she had the privilege to tie at Naka sensei’s satsuei-kai (縄
Subay teaches and performs internationally. Her teaching focuses on the “why”, the
feelings, the emotions, and provides insights on the perspective of both the rope top
and the rope bottom. She is available for private lessons and private sessions.
