Twisted Leprechaun (Dublin 2011)

Twisted Leprechaun was Irelands first fetish festival.

There is a lot goes into a festival event and I can only congratulate all the people who worked behind the scenes to make it so memorable. There are always problems behind the scenes but it’s a testament to those behind the scenes that pretty much nobody attending the event saw them.

We had the pleasure of teaching and performing at this event in Dublin and I do mean the pleasure. The classes really went well and it’s always great to give people something that changes their experience of rope. We ended up with some very spaced out folks by the end of the last session. There’s nothing more satisfying about teaching than seeing people really take something in and have new possibilities open up to them.

The performance night had had to be moved from the beginning to the end of the event. This turned out to work out really well and the atmosphere really felt electric when our turn came.

I have to say a big thanks to everyone who said such wonderful things after the show, it really means a lot to us.

There is so much I should write about this event and yet… my memory will not do it justice at the time of writing.  I’ll leave this now with a few images from our performance with thanks to SansFlash for the images.

About the Author:

WykD_Dave (Dave Rickman) is a UK-based shibari bondage enthusiast, who now teaches and performs internationally accompanied by his partner Clover. He started exploring bondage 27 years ago and was autodidact for the first 17 years, until a lesson with shibari 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 & Clover teach and perform 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.” Running into Dave means running into his lovely partner Clover. She is very passionate about shibari bondage too, she models and performs, as well as makes impressive photos of Japanese rope work done by Dave. Her photography focuses 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?”
