Kinbaku Opening Show by Subay (緒本子) & Dani at Dark Odyssey: Winter Fire
Our Saturday night fairytale extravaganza Once Upon a Time will open with a kinbaku-style suspension bondage performance featuring Hong Kong-based international kinbakushi & kinbaku model & rigger Subay (緒本子) and artist, teacher, & LGBTQ+ youth advocate Dani!
Join us for a kinbaku performance about exploring fantasies, creating a story with emotions, connecting hearts and extending compassion. Subay’s Naka-sensei-influenced kinbaku features a feminine and inclusive approach to eroticism and semenawa – Subay’s kinbaku is soft but intense, and allows space and freedom for Dani to explore her inner self.

Twisted Windows will be hosting the Kink Lounge, with Shay & Davey Faye, True Blue, Evie Vane & MrKiltYou, Rodeokitten & The Patient One, and more! Facebook event listing here, tickets here!

Seriously subversive, particularly perilous, and exquisitely erotic – it’s where you want to be for Halloween in SF! Check out the line-up here!

What to expect at Twisted Windows:
Twisted Windows invites you to create a unique experience exploring concurrent ambient performances, innovative interactive activities, visual art, and sexy main stage spectacle. Very minimal seating will available outside the VIP area – the event is intended to be enjoyed by moving about the space rather than as a seated audience. A coat and bag check will be available.

Twisted Windows is proud to showcase & advocate for sex workers, and all performers are compensated for their contributions.
Some performers will be having photographs or video taken of their performances. No audience members will be recorded.
Only VIP tickets come with a reserved seat. Please contact the producers for accessibility questions and accommodations.
