This workshop is conceived of by artists LH02: Pak Sheung Chuen, Jaffe.T, Cathy Tsang, Grace Gut and Siumou Chow. Alluding to the execution scene in the movie “From Beijing with Love,” this workshop invites pairs of families, close friends or partners (not limited to gender or relationship) to perform rope bondage on each other. Through the exercise of having honest conversations of disclosure in vulnerable settings, participants are able to create open dialogue and cleanse their emotional baggage.

More about the tutor: A different color
Aka Chow, Hong Kong independent writer, writes erotic literature and cultural criticism, focuses on LGBTIQ culture and concerns topics related to sexuality, gender, the body, and female issues.
