About

RopeFest shibari festival is held since 2012.

Creative union «Art Co» invites you to attend the seventh shibari festival in St. Petersburg on 10 – 12th of May 2019 that is devoted to the Japanese art of rope bondage – shibari. RopeFest has become a unique event in the cultural life of St. Petersburg.

The festival has expanded, and we are moving to a new space. Most notably, there will be more space and time for guest socializing, for seminars and festival events. We will also give more attention to interactive events and networking. This will allow the festival to accomplish its main goal – to develop the culture of understanding the Japanese technique of shibari/kinbaku and to strengthen the community of this art. The show program will still consist of 6 (7) shows per day. Those who strive to learn new things about the technique, will be able to attend free master classes and paid seminars.

Traditional mini-events “Bonfage Escape”, megaropejam and art installation will be added with new interactive events that will no less interesting.

A photo exhibition of the winners of “Captive beauty” contest will take place during the festival.
