Shibari Evening Cape Town: Performance

Embodiment Rope Space is a not-for-profit venue dedicated to exploring the erotic art of consensual restriction known as Shibari / Kinbaku / Bondage / Rope Work. We are a safe(r) space where informed consent, communication and care are paramount.

Come and relax with us while we watch an evening of decadence performances.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The evening will start with the doors opening at 18:40 and our performances promptly starting at 19:30. Doors will be closed at 19:15 so be sure to arrive on time. Before the performances start, you can chat, find your seats, have some drinks, and enquire about any rope or other goods on sale at our rope kiosk. The night will kick off with the following two performances:
 

19:30 – Sunga Konji 
Sunga Konji uses Rope to explore intimacy and pleasure while prioritising comfort and joy. He’s interested in a rope practice that is in conversation with continental topics and issues, centers Blackness without fetishism, and doesn’t overly rely on establishing power dynamics in play.

21:00 – Sudo (he/they) & Fire Lily (she/her) & Nightelf Kitsune (she/they)
Sudo has been a student of Kinbaku for many years and is part of Akechi Kanna’s study group and a student of Naka Akira. Fire Lily is a rope bottom with a rich insight into the psychology of rope. They have been tying together for years and host the private Cape Kinbaku Salon together. In their rope bondage, they explore deep states of the beauty of surrender, torment, and connection.  Nightelf Kitsune / Dominique has been an avid fan, willing participant, and lover of Ropes/Shibari for several years. This stems from their early fascination with the Human Body – its physical capabilities – and also testing its personal limitations. Dominique has enjoyed various escapades into Hook Suspension, Rope Suspension as well as Scarification over the years. She has participated in various Shibari projects and performances including Embodiment shows and VIP Mavericks S&M Night. She is always happiest performing within the binds of loved ones and friends. This performance brings together their intense, aesthetic, and collaborative improvisational expression of Kinbaku.  

Events start promptly at 19:30. Please DM us via Instagram if you are running late. Doors open at 18:40 and are closed at 19:15. We will be strict about this because late-coming can be very disruptive to those in the space. Pre-booking is essential (cash on the night is available by arrangement via Instagram DM). Please have your tickets ready to be scanned on arrival. 
 

Embodiment Rope Space is a welcoming and safe(r) space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies. We practice rope communally and host occasional workshops for upskilling the community. Rope is never safe, there are only ways to do it more safely.
