Open House 2017: Ballet, ropes, fabric and Close Ties

Thank you all who joined our last Open House. We had a wonderful night sharing our past, present and future dreams for the studio and shibari.

If you were not able to attend, we leave you here with a little taste of what you missed: two dreamy performances that reflect our modern approach to shibari, in which we merged ropes with ballet and non-rope materials.

Dr Coppelius

One of the most memorable performances to ever take place in the studio was one by Fred Hatt and Anna Noctuelle, where they merged ballet with shibari in a short and sweet piece called Dr Coppelius.

This performance produced some of our most shared photos and also inspired our studio logo:

For this reason, we were extremely excited to that Fred Hatt and Noctuelle shared with us this reworked and repolished version of this piece for our Open House event.

Fabricated Dreams

Performing for the first time together, studio owner Anna Bones and ‘house cat’ Sophia shared some of their latest fabrications with the audience. Fabricated Dreams is a collaborative piece created out of love, curiosity and exploration of materials and movement, developed over time betweenAnna Bones and  Sophia.

They asked: is it still shibari if there are no ropes involved…?
