Hedwig loves to explore the space where bodies are reaching out and to listen through creativity & desire. Rope has proven itself to be especially useful for this practice. She is a queer feminist, switchy, sadistic femme, born, raised and currently residing in Sweden.
Hedwig is passionate about communication, rope bondage, safer sex, and consent culture, about redressing notions of power, physical sensations, vulnerability, dominance and submission, gender and communities working together. She hopes to bring rope bondage to a larger audience as she believes it has the capacity to create ways to communicate, both with emotional and physical sensation, offering routes to pleasure & a playful exploration of desire, creativity, surrender & movement. As an educator, Hedwig focuses on the mutual experience, embracing an inclusive and open atmosphere where the topics at hand are approached both with respect as well as a sense of humor. She strives towards creating integrated learning spaces, where she hopes that her experience as a switch can bring multiple perspectives to everyone attending on either side of the ropes.
Hedwig is a former member of the crew of Peer Rope London, current member of the crew of Peer Rope Malmö and Hitchin’ Bitches Oresund, as well as founding member and grand poobah of Hitchin’ Bitches. She is also a founding member of Ropework.Org, a meta event for rope educators, performers, and organizers. She has taught & performed at various venues across Europe & North America since 2011 while also running the Rope Attic in Malmo (Sweden) a space for learning & sharing rope. She wrote her undergraduate thesis on Shibari and is currently active as a sex educator, activist, and generally being a pain in the butt of patriarchy.
