More about the artists:
MaYa Homerton is an international model of Shibari and addicted to yoga. She has more than 7 years of experience modeling in photography and working in the community of Shibari, she gives her wisdom with yoga for a better knowledge of ourselves, respecting the body, increasing awareness and helping others to obtain this perception. Maya currently travels the world working in the Shibari workshops, performances and photography. She has worked with riggers Hajime Kinoko, Pedro Cordas, Miss Eris & Gorgone.
Glü Wür is an artist who explores the relationship between the limits of the body and the possibilities of his mind. Fusing contemporary circus and Shibari. In her performances she shows the scenic inquiry between identity and its absence, a vindication of physical diversity and a critique of the models of beauty imposed on us by the society in which we live.
This is how, through self-restriction of movements and self-torture, the artist claims freedom and diversity.
