Tying is an interview for me. I ask questions. The questions I ask, with my rope, with different tensions, different distances, different exposures and so on and so forth, aim for answers in the past. / Barkas 2016

Their teaching style is both personal, soft and down to earth, as well as expressive, philosophical and visionary. They take you on a journey through colourful scenarios and stops along the way through a class or workshop, and create vivid images that help you grasp and learn the concepts.

Addie enjoys tying, being tied, and self-tying, as well as performing and educating. Her teaching perspective includes information from and for the person being tied, and she also teaches self suspension.

Together, they opened and are currently co-running TheSpace2 in Vancouver, a venue dedicated to the exploration of rope bondage and its contexts and expressions.

One of Barkas’ focuses is the implementation of philosophical, sociological, mathematical, and historical ideas to develop a deeper understanding of erotic rope bondage. This pursuit lead to the development of the Interview Metaphor – a mindset that prioritizes individuality, attention, and the interaction of the persons tying. As he often says, don’t tie people, tie with people.

In 2016 Barkas collected these and other thoughts, and published them in the book “Archaeology of Personalities; A Linguistic Approach to Erotic Rope Bondage".
