Towa San blogs about LFRA

This is from Towa San’s blog (Please visit) The Japanese readers amongst you will be able to read this first. For all the rest of us a translation will be published soon! Twitter等でご存知の方も多いかとは思いますが・・・。 ロンドンに行ってまいりました。LFRAという縄のフェスティバルに参加させていただくためです。 海外の縄イベントに行くのはダラス、ローマに続いて3回目。 近年、縄師さん達の海外へ行く頻度をみても世界的に緊縛ブームであるんだなあと感じます。 しかも・・・海外の縄イベントは規模が大きい!!!三日間とか続きます・・・素敵すぎる。しかもそれがshowだけでなくて昼間は様々な講師陣による多彩なワークショップ。夜には色んな国からのゲストを招いてのショー。夜中にはプレイパーティー。 この流れは本当に理想的だと感じます。学んで観て感動して遊ぶ。 なんとか日本でも学びとショーと遊びを全て兼ねた素敵なイベントが生まれないでしょうか。 緊縛の歴史、アート史、体の構造、危険予知・回避、各会で重んじられている考え方など知りたいことは尽きません。 Continue reading Towa San blogs about LFRA
