It was a great pleasure to see in Athens the leading rope artist, Felix Rückert, from Berlin, in the first collaboration with Athens Shibari.
Undoubtedly, Felix is one of the most influential and leading figures in the European scene. He has been active for many years, both as a rope artist and a choreographer. Moreover, he has been an organizer of very successful events in the field, such as EURIX and X-plore festival.
The show had a very special character: Felix appeared on stage with two girls and did a live demonstration of negotiation between the model and the rigger on the spot.
With his unique style, he will create a special performance, based on trust, communication, experience and improvisation.
Together with him on stage we had seen Colette and Psychopsis, two models with an impressive and strong presence.
The evening opened with a performance from the rigger Alex Dermatis in a more contemporary western style. After him WisDomme, together with Aspiccia from Germany, performed a show where they inclided visual arts. Together they tried to inspire the artistic side of the ropes, with an aesthetic based on strength and flexibility.
Guest star was Vánagandr Fenrir which showed us her special dancing skills. All photos by Manos Chrisovergis
