Andy Buru & Saara Rei

Andy and Saara are partners in life, love, and sacrifice. They both grew up in the Schwelle family. Once they made daddy Felix drool and safe word, marking the day the little monsters he created turned on him. In celebration of this moment, they decided to start teaching at Xplore. Saara and Andy can now, in hindsight, only presume that they exemplified their understanding of love through their liquid body bond, and were thus invited back this year to share their take on romance.

Andy is a student of theatre, medical massage therapist, and rope lover, with a passion for rituals of trust and sacrifice. 

Saara is a doctor of mathematics, former competitive ballroom dancer, and rope lover, with an eye for humor and fostering absurdity.

  • Because I Love You

    Andy Buru & Saara Rei

    “Love, love, love
    Love, love, love
    Love, love, love

    There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done

    Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung

    Nothing you can say but you can learn
    how to play the game
    It’s easy”
    (Beatles, All you need is love)

    Welcome to a game of sacrifice,
    A game of love.

    What will you do for love?

    This is a workshop in two parts:
    First, a speed-date for love.
    Second, a game of love,
    with one, many, or nobody.

    It’s an experiment.

    It’s because I love you.

    Just witnessing is welcomed.
