Last weekend we participated in the first Ellipsis Rope Event - it was one awesome experience where we provided our "The Rope, The Ring, The Knockout" and a two day RopeMark Ryu learning experience. I have every intention to write about, but could not do it better than the organiser himself:
120 visitors, 3 performers and 2 workshops... I think we're off to a good start ;)
With the help of RopeMarks, DutchDame, Asiana, Shikara, Voleuse, Funmaatje and Tina we were able to provide this evening with an awesome program. The Ellipsis Team did an amazing job helping out whenever and wherever needed and there was a lot of unexpected help from Rope Tower regulars when it was time to clean up at the end
Open doors and workshops (1900 - 2145)
People arrived at a slow pace (as expected) and seemed to like the new venue right away. When the first workshop began there were a few too many couples participating at first but this was easily resolved ;). The workshops looked fun and the participants as well as the spectators seemed to be enjoying themselves. Someome noted that the workshop area could have been moved to the center of the room so that more people would be able to watch… I made note of that for next time ;). At the end our lovely flowergirl provided the workshop hosts with beautiful bouquets which she had made herself earlier that day.
Intro and special appearance (2145 – 2215)
After a short “Hey you guys, great to see you, this is what this evening is about” by yours truly, we had a special surprise from London. The lovely Nina Russ (well known rigger, teacher and co-organiser of Bound and her model Sophia had taped a special HELLO ROPE PEOPLE OF HOLLAND video as an introduction for the evening and to the video of their performance at Bound in May 2015
Performances (2215 - 0030)
The first performance was by Voleuse and myself. Due to a change in the program we had about a week and a half to prepare and Voleuse was still sore from Eurix, but fuck it! Lets do this! :P We had a great time! A few hiccups here and there but nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a smile and a face slap…
Asiana and Shikara were up next. With Spanish music and the sun in their back they gave an amazing performance. The room was deadly quiet as everyone watched their beautiful show.
Last but not least… RopeMarks & DutchDame! A energetic boxing match with matching music, great visuals and fantastic ropework. It was clear to see these pro’s really enjoyed themselves on stage. What a performance…
