Milla Reika and Nami Sai at Sydney Rope Festival 2013, performing `Portrait of Shunkin.`
Tale of a Mistress who`s lover, in yearning to be by her side stabs his own eyes so that they no longer be separated by different worlds or alienation caused by blindness.
A story of complete submission; to oneself, to another and to fate

Story of Empress Dowager and her harem of `Daruma` (human japanese dolls) created for her own sadistic amusement and pleasure… Limbs these days…. are only for the privileged it seems.

Kinbaku Show @ Mementomori in Osaka, Japan
21st July 2013
This show was inspired by Takashi Miike`s film the Box.
Two young orphan twins and their master belong to a 見世物小屋, old Japanese traveling circus/ freakshow.
The twins perform a ballerina act with a finale where they are squeezed into narrow boxes and locked inside.
One of the twins is showered in affection and favored by their master, leaving the other twin feeling neglected and lonely.
Desiring just one night of affection and care, she locks her sister in the box during one of their rehearsal sessions whispering through the tiny gaps in the box `Please endure for just one night. I just want to be you for one night`. . The master walks in at this moment, and there is a scuffle causing a kerosene lantern to fall to the ground and bursting into flames enveloping the box and the twin locked inside.
Dark story of accidental tragedy, loneliness, sense of helplessness and desire for affection.

After over more than a year working with Vanessa [The Purple Pulp] and watching her amazing journey as an artist I am proud to be attending her first Solo exhibition right her in Osaka, on March 2nd 2013. Vanessa has an amazing ability to draw out inner strength and beauty from her models and fusing this with her own creative talent and sensitivity. I have never felt more at ease or at peace with myself in front of a camera then when I do photo-shoots with her. Please note that this photo is not part of her exhibition. (for more information and please check her website)
Farplane Vol.9 Kinbaku Show by [Nymphetamine] headed by Milla Reika. Show based on [Snow White] with inspiration from Rammestein’s video clip from ‘Sonne’. We had a 30 minute stage in which I suspended my two partners, Nancy and Nami, with 3 transitions. This show was also Ellie’s debut as a rope top, tying the chest harnesses for both models.
