      A Taste of Rope - Kinbaku LIVE!

      International rope artists Barkas and Addie will be in Alaska to perform their unique style of rope bondage for a live audience in Anchorage. Dedicated artists and educators, Barkas and Addie were the first internationally recognized bondage edutainers to work with the Anchorage Rope Community providing insights, education and perspective for kinksters and practitioners interested in this Japanese inspired art-form. Join Alaska Kinbaku, Positive Life Alaska and the Anchorage KinkArtz Community Works for an evening of radical, sensual, "sexploration and edutainment" and share in the Beauty of Tight Binding Kinbaku. The Lofts is a nightclub style venue serving drinks and food for purchase. 15 VIP tickets provided for up-front floor viewing. 75 tickets total to be sold. ARTISTS: Barkas is a bondage educator, performance artist, and writer. His contributions to the bondage narrative include the development of Ranboo, the Interview Metaphor, and the City of Kinbaku. Originally from Vienna and now residing in Vancouver, they are the cofounder and caretaker of TheSpace2. In addition to ongoing teaching locally, they continue to travel, perform, and give workshops internationally; some highlights include Shibaricon in Chicago, Moscow Knot, Kannawa Kai in Tokyo, West Coast Boundin Vancouver, FIRE in Orlando, Bondage Expo Denver, Place des Cordes in Paris, Anatomie Studio in London, and EURIX Berlin. One of Barkas focuses is the implementation of philosophical, sociological, mathematical, and historical ideas to develop a deeper understanding of erotic rope bondage. This pursuit lead to the development of the Interview Metaphor - a mindset that prioritizes individuality, attention, and the interaction of the persons tying. As they often say, dont tie people, tie with people. In 2016 Barkas collected these and other thoughts, and published them in Archaeology of Personalities; A Linguistic Approach to Erotic Rope Bondage. Addie has been practicing rope for several years now. She enjoys tying, being tied, and self-tying, as well as performing and educating. Her teaching is informed by her professional background as a nurse, mixed with a wicked sense of humour and the goal of providing impactful, practical, and adaptable techniques and information for the wide variety of individuals who enjoy rope. Addie has spent the last four years teaching around the globe with her partner Barkas, providing information from and for the person being tied. Together, they opened and co-run TheSpace2 in Vancouver, a venue dedicated to the exploration of rope bondage and its contexts and expressions.
