Prague February 2016 Shibari Performance and 2 day intensive.

Prague, venue with WykD Dave, Clover & Fuoco

At the venue for the Prague shibari intensive (left to right) WykD Dave, Clover and Fuoco.

Our first overseas trip of 2016 was to Prague in the Czech republic. We had a great time in the beautiful city of Prague and would like to thank everyone who made us so welcome, especially the organiser of the trip.

First off it’s always great to be taken care of when you’re in an unfamiliar country and you don’t speak the language. Being collected from the airport is such a huge help on any trip and we always appreciate the effort that people go to to make life easy. Also wow, we were put up in a really nice place, so nice to have that kind of space.

Next to the teaching venue, normally a photographic studio but for this weekend a shibari teaching and performance venue. It was a really good space and we really appreciated having this opportunity to teach in the Czech republic for the first time. We arrived the day after Fuoco finished teaching a flexibility class that Clover was quite sorry to miss.

I’m not sure what to say about the intensive other than it was a pleasure to teach such an enthusiastic group. We really did enjoy teaching in Prague and I hope that we made a difference to everyone’s rope life there.

The performance evening was a lot of fun too. It began with a self suspension performance by Fuoco followed by myself and Clover.

Finally after the rope was over for the weekend we got to see some of Prague at night.

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?”
