We continue the exploration from Week 42, on integrating bamboos and poles in ties. This time, let’s look at the different interactions with the objects, and how they can be combined to create different situations. Gather a variety of poles of different lengths and diameters and bring in your creativity.

The goal of this week is to push deeper our exploration of bamboo and poles. Use them to create interesting sensations and take the body on a journey.

Check back on Week 29 to review different techniques that can be used to tie bamboos together and to the body.
