It is with great pleasure that I will once again be teaching my “Improv for Kinky People” but this time as a full-day intensive class on June 10th, at 10 am in New York City.
I offered an introduction to this class in June of last year as part of PBK (People Before Kink) weekend intensive. The response from the attendees was so positive and enthusiastic – I was immediately asked if there would be a more comprehensive class in the future. That same year, I was asked to give the same introduction to my class for Montreal Fetish Weekend 2022 – and it was a huge success!
For 18 years, Montreal’s Fetish Weekend has been one of the “must see/must do” things when coming to our city. The sexy, shiny, leather and latex outfits, the erotic, the gothic and the curious all gather happily in one of the world’s friendliest kinky parties that takes place during labour day weekend.
Unfortunately, Covid hit the city, and hit it hard. Fetish Weekend had to be put on hold for two long agonizing years, and much like the rest of the city, the festival is being rebuilt. The theme of this event, aptly titled – REBIRTH, will be like a Phoenix from the pandemic’s ashes, rising again in all its kinky glory!
Starting on September 1st to the 5th 2022, this festival is a myriad of workshops, discussion panels, social gatherings, dance parties, gala events and a photo walk through the city with a glorious air of pageantry of fashion forward fetish wear through the streets of Montreal.
This year’s Fetish Weekend’s events will be remembered for their larger than life, all-inclusive, spectacularly theatrical dynamic celebrations which will surely set all kinky folk’s hearts ablaze, hosted in some of Montreal’s most iconic entertainment venues.
REBIRTH… A JOURNEY INTO THE KINKIER SIDE OF MONTREAL
2022 brings us a more intimate adventure with a sense of rebirth where the city becomes your playground to explore. Together, we celebrate the movers and shakers who, year round, keep the city’s alternative scene alive and well with their venues. We highlight these enthusiastic KEEPERS OF THE FETISH PRIDE for an incredible journey into the kinkier side of Montreal!
Since the very beginning, our aim has been and remains to bring you the best event and our team dedicates time, effort and vision to create a unique inclusive experience with extra care to you, our loyal attendees. The Montreal Fetish Weekend offers plentiful social opportunities where longtime friendships are rekindled and new ones will be made!
Parties, workshops, shopping, dining, exploring our fabulous city (which in itself offers various more activities), photo walk, a fantasy ball, fashion, performances, outdoor fun, just to name a few!
UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD
Celebrating fetish, fantasy, fun and friendship in the world’s FETISH-FRIENDLIEST CITY, the Montreal Fetish Weekend is one of the largest international fetish gatherings. From latex to lingerie, leather, pvc, goth, lolita, pin-up, cross-dressing and cosplay; all alternative fashion is celebrated. YOU ARE THE STAR!
How my improv training meets BDSM
I am so very honoured to be co-hosting these events with my mentor and dear friend Simone Justice: a former professional Dominatrix, she has also been a BDSM educator for more than 20 years. A Member of the board of directors of DomCon LA and NOLA, she is also an inductee to the BDSM Hall Of Fame.
She and I will also be teaching our respective courses on Friday September 2nd at Hotel Zero. I will be teaching a class called: Improv and BDSM – “how to get out of your head and fully into a scene”.
“Through the examination and application of the basic rules of Improvisation, we will discover the elements of play, surrender and trust, all of which are also the foundations of a successful and satisfying BDSM scene. Through the lens of Improv, I will share a different perspective of spontaneity and flow, and how to break free of our self-imposed rigid narrative kink structures that often keep us from being fully present in the moment. And also, how to embrace failure boldly and happily if and when it does happen. “
