BRINGING TOGETHER AMATEURS
FROM JAPAN AND EUROPE.
A WEEKEND FULL OF PERFORMANCES AND SHIBARI NIGHTS ROPE PARTIES
IN A SPIRIT OF FRIENDSHIP & CONNECTION
Onawa Asobi is a 2-day kinbakushi event which is organized yearly in Tokyo since 2009 and has been a stepping stone for most of Japan’s talented shibarite: Naka Akira, Hajime Kinoko, Ranki Kazami, Ren Yagami, Kasumi Hourai, Bingo Shigonawa, Ero Ouji and many others have all been participants.
Yoi Yoshida (JP), the initiator and organizer of this annual festival, has teamed up with BeShibari (B) to organize this European Edition of Onawa Asobi in the Shibari Lounge venue. For performers and audience alike, it is a unique chance to be part of a weekend of cultural & rope exchange between Japan and Europe. Daytime will be packed with performances and in the evenings we will have Shibari Night rope and play parties.
The spirit of the festival is to get amateur Kinbaku lovers together in an atmosphere of friendship, respect, creativity and support. Onawa Asobi Europe unites Shibarists who have travelled from Japan and all over Europe to show us their creativity and originality and share their unique styles of rope play. Ranging from enthusiastic starters to renowned and respected veterans, Onawa Asobi Europe is about Shibarists who have a sincere interaction with their partners. You will see honest performances by people who can take the audience on a journey and make us truly feel the fun and excitement we all have when doing Kinbaku.
