Dasniya Sommer’s March Workshops: Yoga & Shibari, & “Staging Shibari/Bondage”

More from Dasniya—much more: March workshops in Berlin-Wedding, teaching ballet in Prenzlauer Berg (yes, dragged self’s sorry arse to both), choreographing a piece by director Veit Sprenger in HAU 1, again with Das Helmi, oh! and putting me to shame on the blog front. Most excellent!

Dear Friends, Bondagisti, Theateristi and Dancers,

a month of teaching and performing this March in Berlin! January’s return to Yoga & Shibari saw many old and new faces, and my new workshop Staging Shibari took ropes and bondage somewhere else again.

As always, you can read all about this on my blog. In the meantime:
