T&P Spectrum Black: Power, dominance/submission, pain, BDSM

Pain Processing – Felix Ruckert

Pain can stimulate awareness, trigger trance and create relieve. Pain can make you feel strong, powerful and present. It is all about technique. The art, the knowledge of the active part is to administer pain in the right amount, in he right moment, on the right spot. To read the body of the partner, to understand his or her reactions. The art of the passive part is to invite the pain, to process and to transform it. Only for a few lucky people pain directly creates sexual arousal. Most people prefer pain combined with sensual touch and comfort. In the workshop we will learn the right balance between malice and care that creates an intense and potentially ecstatic experience. We will work with different sources of pain, like whips and floggers, cloth pins, canes, hot wax and others. We will apply various techniques and cover safety issues. Every instrument, every technique creates a different sensation and permits a specific experience, but they all have one thing in common: it is about connection and trust, And about power and devotion on both sides. The workshop is suitable for beginners, but also for experienced players looking for a different approach or seeking to refine their technique. I use all the knowledge that I acquired in 25 years of exploring dance, body work, touch and BDSM. Read Felix Ruckert’s Biography

Basics of Dominance and Submission – Felix Ruckert

After an introduction F. R will propose some simple exercises allowing to experience dominant and submissive behaviour in various settings. Even though many people tend to prefer one role in a sexual context, Dominance and submission are not seen as static personal characteristics but rather of situational behaviour strategies. In everyday life the roles we take might change with the partner, the situation and our goals. This ability to “switch” in every day situations can be adapted to erotic encounter and become fun way to explore different aspects of our own and other people’s personality. A workshop for the playful, adventurous and curious!!! Read Felix Ruckert’s Biography

Low Flying Contact – Wim Franken

It is difficult to get a space that is suitable for a project like this and to have interested bodies & minds to experiment with the mixture of dance, flying and bdsm. I am very curious about what will happen in the given situation (e.g. using movement, trapezes, nakedness, bdsm, silences) and how people will experience this, both as performer and/or spectator.

Ki Dialogue – Richard Sarco-Thomas

What is happening energetically when we are in a state of physical consensual communion with another/others? Where do the barriers naturally come in and where they dissipate?
