Join us on January 20 at SPNKD, Antwerp, for a mesmerizing evening of sensual exploration with Marie Sauvage’s Intimate Rope Jam. Immerse yourself in the artistry of Marie and guest teacher cnr.aphilia as they collaborate in a special demonstration. Witness the chemistry between these two experts as they bring their unique styles together for a night of captivating rope play. 

This informal gathering is designed as a casual and collaborative space for individuals eager to explore and enhance their interest in rope play. We encourage participants to attend this rope jam with a (play)partner—someone you can either tie or be tied by. Tickets are available for individual purchase.

The rope jam will take place from 20u00 until 01u00, allowing ample time for you to indulge in an array of creative ties and connections. 

Participants should have a good understanding of the fundamental safety principles and techniques, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

The rope jam will accommodate 26 guests, creating an intimate setting that encourages personal interactions and shared experiences. Participants will have the exciting opportunity to be tied by Marie and/or Conor Aphilia, ask they won’t bite (unless you ask!).

The studio has five suspension points, enabling participants to explore the exhilarating world of partial or full suspension if they so desire. The rope jam is an opportunity to push your boundaries and discover new facets of rope play in a supportive and inclusive environment.

Prepare yourself for an evening of connection, exploration, and artistic expression through rope play. An evening where you can deepen existing connections, meet new friends, or simply revel in the joy of rope.

Marie Sauvage

For Marie, shibari is a celebration of this intimacy. By reveling in the eroticized human body, the elegant lines of rope defy the pull of gravity, transcending both muse and audience to a realized freedom. One is left spellbound in the perfume of Marie’s performance.” -Alina Mahalic, The Beauty Cult

Marie Sauvage is a boundary-breaking artist known for her unique approach to Shibari, a Japanese art form involving rope tying. Studying art and finding inspiration in live drawing classes, she embraces the beauty of the human form in her performances. With a feminine perspective, she has made Shibari more accessible and intriguing to a broader audience, going beyond traditional SM culture to emphasize mutual trust and vulnerability. Marie’s authentic and sensual performances create a mesmerizing experience that celebrates the intimate connection between the rigger, muse, and audience.

“I have studied the techniques, emotions and aesthetics of the Japanese masters and, from their knowledge, developed an adaptive and inclusive style that is open to everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, size or flexibility. My background in design has given me a unique approach to Rope, a constantly evolving blend of Western & Eastern aesthetics & perspectives.”  Read more here
