We have just uploaded Performance techniques: Part II ‘Stagecraft for shibari models’, a very comprehensive tutorial by Kitty Rae. Kitty is an international bondage model who has performed with many of the the west’s best shibari artists and also has extensive exposure as a fetish model. Combined with her developing skills as a rigger, this gives her invaluable experience on stagecraft and looking great in front of an audience. If you have been to BOUND, you will probably have seen evidence of this.
Kitty Rae passes on a wealth of shibari modelling experience to help you project yourself on stage in the best possible way and enhance your rigger’s show. You and the rigger are a team but your role is key in making that performance great. She will explain how you can contribute and, most importantly, help you avoid mistakes that can ruin the best show and your prospects as a model.
Whether you perform for fun or professionally, this tutorial will improve your stage presence and help you earn greater recognition. You can preview the introduction here which will give you a flavour for the course.

- Preparing for a performance and coping with nervousness
- Advice on costumes, make-up and posture
