Learn about the tradition of Shibari Japanese rope bondage and the principles of knot tying for suspension and self-suspension.
PaperDolls began exploring the Japanese tradition of Shibari and Kinbaku rope tying during the production of our show ‘Constellations’ which won the Spirit of the Fringe 2012. Shibari is a technique of bodily suspension using hemp and jute rope. We started exploring self-suspension and the suspension of others in a dynamic way for Constellations and really liked the organic and essential elements of the rope and the construction of aerial apparatus using knots and ties. The visual element also really appealed to us and we’ve continued to explore using the ropes performatively and integrating it with the more conventional circus aerial apparatus including aerial hoop and corde lisse (acrobatic rope).
