PS As I mentioned in the earlier post, Zetsu did a thorough write-up about Nagaike Takeshi’s stay in the US, and his collaboration with Ernest Greene. They also did two movies together, one set in the USA (”Bondage of the Rising Sun”), and one set in Tokyo, Japan (”Rope of the Rising Sun”). As far as I know, they were only released on VHS and have never been digitalized. I recently got my hands on the film set in Japan (images below). The movie is from 1997, and features in addition to Nakaike, ”the world-renowned domina Midori (in her first-ever video performance)” and the models Jill Kelly and Randi Rage.

A quote from Zetsu’s interview with the photographer Ken Marcus: ”Until I had worked with Takeshi, I was under the impression that Japanese Kinbaku had to be a structured and traditional ritual art form. What I learned during my week of watching Takeshi was how interpretive and free-form rope can be. He would incorporate the environment, utilize furniture and ordinary objects into his rope/human compositions.” Source: http://www.kinbakutoday.com/americas-first-japanese-bakushi/
