Shibari Showcase 2017! What a night!

We are so proud and overwhelmed with the quality and the standards of the shibari performances we witnessed at this year’s annual showcase! All performers – who are either our students and members of our community – went on stage to perform in rope for the first time, and simply blew our minds!

Performances ranged from theatrical, to intimate, they made us laugh, cry, feel things and showed a variety of dynamics, levels of play and intimacy. Just simply WOW.

Here are some of the highlights of the night. Photos by Anna Bones.


DJfet & RESPECT performing with no music and one single rope.

Shibari meets circus!

This month we have been mixing shibari and circus a lot in the studio with some quite stunning results! Turns out these blend very well together and we are looking forward to continue the interchange. If you are a circus artist or dance and would like to incorporate rope into your project(s), get in touch to collaborate, book a private lesson or book our one of our shibari riggers 🙂

We leave you here with some of our favourite shots from this month’s exchanges with circus artists Amelia Cavallo, Sadiq Ali and Maisy Taylor. The shibari rope rigging is by MnR, Anna Bones and MissEris respectively. Photos by Anna Bones.

What do you think? ❤

Enjoy!

// Elements // Air // Photoshoot Collaboration

Last Friday was another one of those days where we got to have some fun with ropes, camera, friends and some colourful lighting. We played on the theme of the four elements: Earth, Fire, Water and Air, and had the rope and poses reflect each of these elements. Theo was our model and collaborator for the evening and was just absolutely amazing to work with.

We leave you here with our images for Air, where Theo is floating and gracefully falling from cloud 9…
