Gorgone - After many years of exploration and experimentation with the technics and emotions of traditional Japanese Rope Bondage (Shibari/Kinbaku), my interest and practice evolved and led me onto a more contemporary and experimental approach of Shibari. The projects presented here were born from the desire to break free from the sexual and S&M connotation that it carries.
My mission today is to convey the unique experience and aesthetic of the body in ropes to a broader and more mainstream audience.
I discovered Ropes almost by accident, during a photo shooting in 2011.
Immediately seduced, I dived into the underground world of traditional Japanese rope bondage (Shibari/Kinbaku).
In 2016, I started the Study on Falling - an aesthetical and philosophical research and work-in-progress, inspired by the work of Bobbi Jene Smith 'A Study on Effort'
The live piece inspired the talented singer Asaf Avidan for the tittle of his new single and album. I was honored to present the live performance 'Study on Falling’ as his opening act on the prestigious stage of the Opera Garnier in Paris.
In 2017 I produced and launched the Online Tutorial Platform Shibari Study.
I have been touring internationally since 2013 as a freelance performer and educator.
So far I have been teaching and/or performing as a model and/or a rigger in Europe, USA, Japan, New Zealand and Israel (Paris, Berlin, London, Rome, Athens, Madrid, Lausanne, Prague, Bucarest, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Utrecht, San Francisco, New-York, Chicago, Louisville, Atlanta, Houston, Seattle, Orlando, Bellingham, Charlottesville, Memphis, Philadelphia, New-Orleans, Baltimore, Cleveland, Denver, Tel Aviv, Wellington, Tokyo and Osaka)
