Saturday night the star aligned the right way and I was able to go to his event at Bar 9259 .

On stage it was going to be Umitsuki Kurage 海月くらげ (Hajime Kinoko's student) and Yagami Ren 鵺神 蓮; two of the young rising stars of this new generation of nawashi. It promised to be an event not to be missed and it surely delivered on its promises: OH.MY.GOODNESS!

We met up outside the bar and once inside, we were greeted by Kinoko-san that had come over to oversee his ex-student's performance. "I feel [as nervous] as a parent at the school's Undokai ( sport festival) !" he told me once Kurage-san's show started.

Umitsuki Kurage 海月くらげ

It was a fast paced show of evolving suspensions, with a line up of Western pop and rock music as its soundtrack.

Kurage-san and his model, entered the stage together, him in his distressed looking, ripped and sleeveless white judogi, and her in a sweet baby-pink baby-doll. By the time she was down on her knees, ready for the first rope to be applied, she was already fast lost into her own rope-space.

It started with a classic ushiro takakote, followed by a very interesting rope crossed above her breasts, just under her neck. That rope managed to push her into a even deeper sort of trance.

To continue the base harness for the suspension, he then moved to a sort of corset and concluded with a hip harness.

He then tied her bended sideways' legs in position, securing them to the body harness, before hoisting her up from the suspension point in a vertical sitting position.

From there it was a succession of adding and removing ropes, changing her suspended position and form, from the vertical sitting suspension, to a side suspension with one leg stretched and pulled up, then bended backward. Then tying her legs bended at the knee, and then securing the bended legs to her chest. And again rope getting untied here, pulled there, added here, taken away there until he brought her to a vertical inverted suspension, before slowly turning her to a face up position and lowering her to the ground.

His movement were strong and energetic, and the whole show very dynamic.

With each rope added and pulled, with each knot tied and untied, you could see Kurage-san also getting deeper and deeper into his own rope space, with his eyes gleaming with predatory lust and his muscle pulsating with repressed energy .

By the end of the performance, she was too far gone, so after lowering her to the ground and removing the ropes from the suspension point, he simply picked her up, still tied in her basic harnesses, and followed by the crowd's applause, he carried her off the stage.

It was a good show, fast paced, energetic and dynamic, with energies flowing and being exchanged between the nawashi and the model, primordial energies channeled through the ropes and the knots. But from a show point of view, it felt at times as if there was too much rope bundled up and hanging around the suspensions point and columns. It had indeed a practical reason as it all got used for one position or the other, but it created a distracting visual clutter that detracted from the aesthetic of what could have been an even better show.

Unfortunately, I had not had the pleasure to see him perform at Tobaku, but talking with Kinoko-san after the show, he expressed joy in seeing that his student's rope had been steadily improving.

The second number was a self suspension by a young woman. It takes so much strength, balance and concentration to tie yourself, hoist yourself up, go from one position to another, twist and twirl and swing! They athleticism was indeed impressive, and also the intensity she infused in her performance, a sort of suspended dance.

The theme was very dark, expressing the alienating fast paced life in a megalopolis, and the ending, extreme and fatalistic, with her pointing a (toy) gun to her mouth and shooting herself.

It surely changed the total atmosphere of the room, showing another facet of a rope and bondage performance.
