Hedwig is a queer feminist, poly, switchy femme, born, raised and currently residing in Sweden. She picked up rope after having moved to London and exploring the rope scene there. 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 has taught and performed at various venues across Europe and North America since 2011, while also running the Rope Attic in Malmö (Sweden), a space for learning and sharing rope. She hopes to bring rope bondage to a larger audience as she believes it has the capacity to create ways to communicate and interact, offering diverse routes to pleasure and a playful exploration of desire, surrender and 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. 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. Hitchin’ Bitches is an international network for female identified riggers and ropetops with over 40 chapters over the world. She is also a founding member of the event Ropework.Org, a meta event for rope educators, performers and organisers. 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”.
