<< Back to Presenter's List


Zamil, born and raised in Berlin, now living in Switzerland, has been performing on stage since before he turned twenty and has always enjoyed the lights of the stage. Becoming active in the lifestyle in 1999, he was resident performer with Bondage shows from 2003 till 2009 at the Berlin Darkside-Club. He was founder of ArtSensual project (ArtSensual.com) with his former partner maliZ. ArtSensual has become world renown as an established name for high class bondage performances, and has had their work shown in fetish magazines, the daily press and radio stations as well as TV, magazines and podcasts. They have been voted "Best Performer" in 2008 by the international audience at BoundCon.

A teacher by heart, Zamil has spent years as an educator at college level and is now teaching at Universities in Europe. In 2004 he traveled to Japan to study traditional Kinbaku techniques at its source, he became student to one of the more renowned professional bakushi in Tokio. He continued studying with this bakushi till 2009. His patience, focus and fun delivering those traditions and new styles of rope art from Japan has become well known.

Zamil was teacher of the Osada Ryu from 2007 till 2009, teaching contemporary Kinbaku techniques to the interested student. After finishing his studies, he became editor in chief of the German Bondage Magazine and he founded Kinbaku-Art in 2009

Zamil sees himself first as an live bondage performance artist, bondage trainer and author. He's very traditional in terms of bondage. This means for him that he takes Shibari and the japanese tying tradition seriously. Shibari for him is not only a tie, but a special bondage, following certain astethic rules in visual and application.

Dancing With the Ropes: Efficient Rope Handling for Experienced Riggers

Monday 5/26/2014 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
"Dancing with the ropes" by Zamil of Kinbaku-Art.com

"and as he finished dancing, she realized she was tied"

You, rope and your partner, you think that this is it? Re-think please. Do you know your body, the way it moves naturally? Do you know how to integrate your natural movements into your style of tying so that it just comes naturally to you?

Do you know how much your ego and set goals interfere with your ability to get the most out of your rope sessions?

The key to the essence of rope is never the technique, never the rope and never your own goal.

If you want answers, join in.
