Dasniya Sydney

Dasniya in Australia! Swimming in the ocean and, well, I can only imagine what else, or at least what I’d be doing in Sydney, in the warm, early-autumn evenings (flying cockroaches and giant slugs). Xplore is coming to an end, and last night Dasniya performed something I have only seen slightly in rehearsals, and now from one photo, something of an inevitable unravelling of shibari. I like how when one takes the formal language of any art form literally, and follows the implications of that literalness, things get weird and funny very quickly.

In the meantime, before going north to Lismore, Dasniya is teaching workshops in Sydney at Schwelle Sydney next week, and the schedule is up. For anyone in Sydney:
