This Friday we welcome the incredibly talented Marie Sauvage to NSFW SoHo to walk Send Noobs attendees through a basic shibari demonstration. Sauvage is a shibari artist based in New York City. Her fascination with the ancient Japanese practice started when she met Hajime Kinoko in Tokyo for a private lesson in 2017. She eventually moved to Tokyo in 2018 to study under him and work as his art assistant at his studio. Since she moved back to New York, she continued to perform shibari with him and on her own in New York, Los Angeles and Paris. The Japanese approach to shibari resonates with her because of the emphasis on the sensuality inherent in the process of binding, and their reverence for aesthetics. Want to catch her in the act?
