Are you fascinated by the art of Japanese rope bondage? Shibari Art Fair 2023 is the event for you! Head to Heath in Tsim Sha Tsui from July 13 to 23 for a unique sensory experience experiencing the art and technique of shibari.

The Shibari Art Fair offers a variety of activities, including life drawing sessions, dance performances, a guided tour, panel discussions, and a live music night.

Shibari, meaning the art of Japanese rope bondage, has a long history dating back to the Edo period in Japan. It only became an art form when it was integrated into kabuki theatre performances.

You'll have the opportunity to watch a Shibari performance or, if you're feeling adventurous, participate in one. For those who love photography, workshops will be offered featuring three distinct backdrop settings. If you're new to shibari, the live music night, presented by Mexican band Deer Mx and z.a.m.p.a., provides a wonderful introduction

Unleash your inner artist with a life drawing session guided by illustrator Nou No. Don't miss the classic Butterfly Lovers performance reinterpreted. Each performance is a collaborative art form and varies each time.

When: July 13-23

Where: Basement, Heath, Chungking Mansion, 36-44 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon

How much: Free entry - prices vary on activities
