Join us in starting 2023 with a bang! We invited Mr Hajime Kinoko to just do that. On Saturday the 28th of January Mr Hajime Kinoko will do us the honor with a performance night at SPNKD. Doors open at 20u30 (last admissions at 21u30). 

We’ve invited 35 guests to experience the mind twisting, reality bending rope ties of Mr Hajime Kinoko. Gather around and allow yourself to get caught in the web of intensity paired with a touch of sensuality. Introduced to shibari by his then girlfriend, his journey started in 2001 when the ancestral art of tying sparked a deep rooted interest.

2003 was the year he was managing a fetish bar, a place where his passion grew & was nurtured by the late rope master Akechi Denki who was holding workshops at the bar. Mr Hajime Kinoko perfected his art and diversified, incorporating nature (such as trees and rocks) as well as projects involving the innovative use of space have especially won praise. In addition to performing live rope shows, he has recently been actively releasing artwork including photographs and video, often being in charge of tying, photography, and direction.

The infamous rigger is also well known outside of Japan, having conducted workshops in more than 20 major cities such as Paris, London, and Munich as well as in Japan. Mr Hajime Kinoko is a rope specialist representing Japan.

The performance will last for approx. 45min, It will be a curated series of suspension transition sequences supported by his model/muse. After the performance Mr Hajime Kinoko is available for a chat and any questions you have. When you’re a master in your field, there is limited time for English lessons! Please take into account that his level of English is basic. 

Tickets will be going fast, secure your spot now! 

The Teacher

“For me, shibari is about ‘connection’.

When tying someone, it’s not about capturing or tying that person. I cherish the ‘connection’ with the model the most. To me it feels like I am tying myself with the model like strings connecting two paper cups to make a paper toy telephone. When I tie someone with a strong feeling that the model is important, I can feel many things such as how they want to be tied with rope, at what timing and where. And I can tie depending on the models’ desires. The lines created when I tie that way are like waves that carve rocks and create cliffs. I create lines like those created by nature, and only exist between the model and I. I feel those are wonderful and beautiful. That is the shibari that I pursue.” (Source: http://shibari.jp )

What will happen?

The doors open at 20u30 and close at 21u30. By 21u45 the performance will take place and this will end at 22u30. Mr Kinoko will be available to meet and connect with after the show. We heard through the grapevine, there might be a few lucky ones who he will tie.
