Kinbaku

PrimeOrdial has studied the art of Kinbaku under 18 different rope masters, including Kazami Ranki, Hajime Kinoko, Nawashi Kanna, & Osada Steve. Experience this intimate, powerful aerial display will evoke numerous reaction as you watch master puppeteers transition their living muses through the air.
Kinbaku literally translates as 'binding tightly', yet in Japan it's actual meaning describes a unique journey... an often unspoken intimate communication achieved through deft utilisation of rope.
With historical roots in 'fast capture' techniques used by bushido warriors during the early 1400's, the martial art (then known as Hojojutsu) has evolved into a performance art form like no other.
For the person being tied the closest analogy is a form of mediation that is achieved through the consensual restraint, bordering on 'forced yoga', where the rigger transitions his model through the air like a master puppeteer.
The result is a sensualized, blissful journey shared between those involved that evokes an incredibly wide range of emotions from audiences.
