Bound 2 (London 2012)

Our second time at bound was a great night. On reason we specially wanted to make this particular night was that Nawakiri Shin was going to perform and we wanted to meet him. He is the only rigger we knew of from Tiwan and he’d also performed at Hajimi Kinoko’s festival Tobaku in Japan.

It was again a great night of performances. There are some riggers in London that are making real strides forward and the quality of some performances was visibly improving.

Here it will not surprise you that I’m going to concentrate on Nawakiri Shin’s performance at Bound.

The thing that struck me about Shin’s performance right away was how theatrical it was. There was a scripted story, delightfully there was also comedy. The performance was entitled ‘Monster’  and I won’t spool the joke for you if you haven’t seen it. I don’t think I’ll spoil too many secrets however if I say Cute Schoolgirl gets tied up and sadistic things happen to her. It was a lot of fun. They were a lot of fun. Really looking forward to seeing them again at the London festival.

We also did a little something. Pics of our performance below.

About the Author:

WykD_Dave (Dave Rickman) is a UK-based rope enthusiast, who now teaches and performs internationally accompanied by his partner Clover. He started exploring bondage 22 years ago and was autodidact for the first 17 years, until a lesson with rope professional Osada Steve changed his way of tying. Dave loves Japanese style rope work, and decided to dedicate himself to this. “It isn’t about the rope, it’s about the expression, the look in the eyes, the hopelessness, the agony”. Now, Dave feels fortunate to be asked to run workshops and tutorials all around the world. He takes great pleasure in seeing people get it and open their minds to what rope bondage can really be. “Not just a means of restraint but a much deeper and personally connected experience than any other I’ve ever found.” Most of the time, running into Dave means running into his lovely partner Clover. She is very passionate about rope, she models and performs, as well as makes impressive photos of Japanese rope work done by Dave. Her photography focusses on the feelings involved in rope play, not just the pretty ties, and she tells stories with her pictures. Dave: “Of course Clover’s a huge part of everything. Without her photography would people ever have noticed?”
