Please note: because of the nature of our campaign, we can only accept pledges from persons 18 and over. Thank you!
UPDATE: Stretch Goals.
Wow, what a campaign! Weâ€™ve been blown away by the response; thank you to everyone whoâ€™s pledged so far.
With our original goal of $2000, we will be able to open The Salon with the essentials: our two suspension frames, a stage, lighting, and a music system. However, we think we might be able to go one (or two) better.
All funds raised beyond the original goal will go into further developing The Salon. To give you an idea of what this will look like, we present to you:
Our Stretch Goals.
If we reach $3000â€¦
House rope and rope cutters for general use
A fridge for drinks storage
A multimedia projector and screen
If we reach $4000â€¦
Serious house kit â€“ rope, cutters, carabiners and suspension rings (maybe even swivels, pulleys and slings too)
Better music and lighting â€“ weâ€™ll up the ante on both quality and quantity
Tatami mats, baby
THE SALON: BRISBANE'S ONLY DEDICATED ROPE SPACE.
Coming soon, courtesy of Lucero, Nix and ladyzed.
We have the premises. We have the passion. And now we want to share it with you.
The Salon will be an intimate rope space for anyone who enjoys tying, being tied or simply watching. Weâ€™ll be running regular events, ranging from rope parties to casual lazy bondage afternoons to dazzling performance nights. We will also be facilitating rope tuition, from local and (ultimately) interstate and international teachers.
This is your chance to be involved from the very beginning. With the money raised from this campaign, The Salon Brisbane will be kitted out with:
- The Supporterâ€™s Suspension Frame (see what we did there?), the likes of which has not been seen in a Brisbane public venue before â€“ large enough to comfortably suspend six people at once
- A performance stage, equipped with its own multipoint suspension frame and stage lighting
- A professional music system
If we do really well, we will also be fitting this amazing space with:
- A video projector and screen
- Tatami mats
Weâ€™ll also be taking care of the look and feel of the space, with beautiful atmospheric decoration and comfortable seating where you can take a break between ties or simply watch bondage scenes unfold around you.
THE GRAND OPENINGof the Salon will take place on
27th FEBRUARY, 2015with multiple performers and plenty of opportunity to utilise the space for your own rope scenes. This truly will be a night not to be missed.
Tickets to the Grand Opening are available exclusively through this campaign and are strictly limited, so get in quick!
A ticket to the Grand Opening night is just one perk you can pick up through in this campaign. All pledges made to the project will come with perks, ranging from your name on the Supporterâ€™s Suspension Frame all the way up to an opportunity to be tied by Lucero, with him dressed in a costume of your choice!
MEET THE CREW
LUCEROis a rigger and may get upset if you call him a rope artist. He has been involved in the kink world for longer than he would care to admit, and has been tying seriously for four years. His influences are widely varied, having learnt from __S__, OsakaDan, Milla Reika, MissEvilGen, Mark DV8 and Lochai, amongst others. His rope has a strong focus on restriction, speed and intent. He has an affinity for the Japanese style but draws inspiration from a wide range of sources.
Locally, he has been helping co-ordinate Peer Rope Brisbane in collaboration with Redbear since its inception. He is also the current Vice President of Brisbane Leather Pride. He has been performing as a rigger for the past two years, with appearances at Fetish Fridays (performance nights held as part of the Brisbane Leather Pride Festival) and at Fetish Empire Carnivale.
NIXhas been in the scene for less time than sheâ€™d care to admit but took to a liking to rope early and never let it lie. Sheâ€™s been a rope model for over two years, performing with Lucero at a range of events. She also ties, poorly, but sheâ€™s working on it. Her interest in rope as a model is strongly influenced by her background; sheâ€™s been a gymnast since age 8, a pursuit that evolved from competitive training into a more performance-based passion over time. She currently teaches and trains circus in a variety of forms, with flying trapeze and tissu her personal favourites. Flying in rope is her haven.
LADYZEDhas been a part of the Brisbane scene for over a year, but has been a kinkster at heart for far longer. Rope quickly became an obsession when she came onto the scene, a passion that hasnâ€™t changed one bit since. She is a talented rope model, and enjoys everything from slow, sensual rope to hard-and-fast bondage. She has a (distant) background in gymnastics and dance, and is a lover of all things artistic, intimate and beautiful. Sheâ€™s been involved in the production of several local fetish performances, both as a performer and behind the scenes contributing musical arrangement and story design.
Together we are LATC. We present to you The Salon: bound to be.
