Sydney Rope Festival

The Sydney Rope Festival will be a showcase of the best talent in Japanese rope bondage from Australia and around the world. The intrinsic beauty, feel and structure of Japanese rope bondage evolved from its original roots of Martial arts and has become an expressive art form today. 
'Shibari' means 'to tie' and 'Kinbaku' to 'rope bondage', however the deeper meaning of these words do not translate in vocabulary as the portrayal of human emotion and desire, that is the essence of Japanese rope bondage, is both limitless and unable to be restrained by language.

SORGS will be collaborating with Sydney Rope Dojo (founders of the Sydney Rope Festival), Intimate Horizons and Ozkink Fest in Melbourne to produce this festival.

Location: Leela Centre, 2nd Floor, 113-115 Oxford Street, (Corner of Crown Street), Darlinghurst NSW 2010
