I am able to proudly present, Sang Bleu VI’s collaborative Launch evening with Puma, in Milan!
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
The London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage presents kinbaku (aka shibari/Japanese rope bondage) as an artistic inspiration, a performance art in its own right and as a means of erotic communication, whilst sharing knowledge about it and its cultural context in a way that is accessible to all. We present an unparalleled range of talent from around the world and it is rapidly establishing a reputation as the Japanese bondage event.
It includes: Kinbaku inspired art, photography and design Presentations, classes and workshops by world renowned experts Music, movies and videos Performances and demonstrations Japanese food and drink
The main venue will be the Resistance Gallery. This is an unique, multi-functional, modern, 2,200sq ft arts, performance & gallery space in the creative heart of Bethnal Green, London E2. It provides art exhibition space, theater, avant-garde gatherings, cabaret, photographic shoots, filming & video location, live music events, multi media installation experiences, workshops etc.

Im in a good mood so I thought I’d start with a high-level wordplay. Anyway, browsing some Kinbaku-related discussions on <a href=”http://Fetlife.com” target=”_blank”>Fetlife.com</a>, I found the work of <a href=”http://murusou-club-movie.com/en/” target=”_blank”>Naka Akira</a>. I downloaded a couple of videos and to be honest, it is one of the most beautiful bondage I’ve seen. Far from the boring photo—graphic occidental approach, <a href=”http://murusou-club-movie.com/en/” target=”_blank”>Naka Akira</a> is always very close to looking messy which gives an uncanny realism to the scene, in spite of the obvious staging. And for some reason, a japanese bondage masters, although geeky remain credible while an occidental one usually looks like he should just go back to eating pizza and playing World of Warcraft.

To prepare you for all Sang Bleu 6, here are some trailers of what is to come!!!
Sang Bleu has existed for nearly ten years as an independent project that has served as a social benchmark within media concerning tattooing, fashion, cultural studies and fetish; catering for individuals who seek more than what pleases the masses and what is offered through conventional publications and websites.
With each Eponymous issue of the publication growing in strength, popularity and acclaim, Sang Bleu now presents its eagerly anticipated Issue 6- featuring 700 pages of editorial content by and featuring the likes of Ellen Von Unwerth, Estevan Oriol, Booba, Robert Ryan, Bushwick Bill to name but a few; not to mention the Issue’s guest editor Betony Vernon who has built a name firmly within both the fetish and fashion world.
With the printed magazine existing as a somewhat precarious format, it is up to those who know they can withold a firm mark within modern publishing to continue to do so, leaving imitators and emulators behind in the process. Sang Bleu serves as one of these publications, who since entering fruition has inspired further those passionate about the subject matter, as well as drawn in those curious about it towards a powerful and focused art-direction and vision.
Sang Bleu 6 will be only be able to be obtained through pre-ordering through the Sang Bleu 6 website/store page, and will be available to be shipped worldwide. As it exists as a 100% independent and non-profit publication who unlike others, reliant on advertisements and sponsors, can only be offered in a bespoke and personal way, catering for the dedicated individual or establishment who wants to support the project further.
Thank you for your continued support
