Interview with the Nawashi

Osada Steve published an interview with one of the greatest masters of shibari, Akechi Denchi. The interview is chock full of very interesting stuff, but I especially liked the close of it, where he talks about his performances:

"When I get on stage at the beginning of a show, I don’t have any ideas about what I’m going to do. I empty my mind. Then the ideas just come to me, from within or from the partner I’m working with. Sometimes the ropes move on their own and my hands just follow, and that is always an amazing experience. I just disappear. The shibari is always very beautiful when that happens."
