"The Art of Tying: Shibari in Popular Culture"

Willie Miller Instructional Center, Lemerand Auditorium

The Art of TyingMatthieu Guitton, Ph.D., of Université Laval presents a stimulating discussion about the historic Japanese practice of Shibari (knot tying) and its place in popular culture. Central to the art is creating patterns that contrast and complement the natural curves of the body, with roots that date back to pacifying defeated samurai. The beauty lies in juxtaposition: skin against rough rope, strength against exposure, a sense of calm against the knife-edge of risk. Some information discussed may not be suitable for children. The performance is brought to you by the Arts & Letters Committee and the College of Arts & Sciences.
