Stagecraft for models
Stagecraft for models
Kitty Rea passes on a wealth of shibari modelling experience to help you project yourself on stage in the best possible way and enhance your rigger's show. You and the rigger are a team but your role is key in making that performance great. She will explain how you can contribute and, most importantly, help you avoid mistakes that can ruin the best show and your prospects as a model.
Whether you perform for fun or professionally, this tutorial will improve your stage presence and help you earn greater recognition.
Key subjects include:
- Preparing for a performance and coping with nervousness
- Advice on costumes, make-up and posture
- Hidden ways to communicate during a show
- Making the best of your assets
- Cardinal rules of being a good model
- Working within your limits and limitations
Kitty is an international bondage model who has performed with many of the the west's best shibari artists and also has extensive exposure as a fetish model. Combined with her developing skills as a rigger, this gives her invaluable experience on stagecraft and looking great in front of an audience. If you have been to BOUND, you will probably have seen evidence of this.
A Letter from Kitty Rae
International bondage and fetish model
I am mostly a speaker. I talk to people, I help them out, I welcome them in the kink community or the poly community.I am also a visual advocate. Of confidence, of sexuality, of freedom. I believe in the joy of being open to the world and letting it embrace you as you are, being a bondage model is one route I chose. I wish for all to find the strength to be themselves and I try to lend a hand on that journey. This course embodies so much of what I have learned, sometimes the hard way but I'll help you avoid those typical beginner's mistakes.
I am an explorer of life always looking for my next adventure, wherever I may find it and whichever shape it might take. I can guarantee that life as a bondage model will bring you plenty of adventures and opportunities of travel. Start that journey today!
