INDICA TORTURE Performs with DAVID J

Calling all voyeurs  to join us this Friday night as the beautiful, seductive and in control, INDICA TORTURE will be performing for you on Friday, December 1, 2017 at the UNDERGROUND (1146 Fort Street) .  

The iconic bassist and one of the founders of the post punk band, BAUHAUS and LOVE AND ROCKETS will be performing for two nights in Honolulu: Friday, December 1,  2017, hosted by KINK CARNIVAL at the UNDERGROUND  and Saturday, December 2, 2017 at NEXT DOOR ( 43 N. Hotel Sreet)

Tickets are available now and they are going fast, $20 advance or $25 at the door.  If you want to go to both nights, you can purchase your tickets for $35 online :  http://djnocturna.com/david-j-exclusive-dj-set-december-1-2017/

We asked INDICA TORTURE somethings we always wanted to know  about her but were afraid to ask:

1) In a relationship are you dominant or submissive ? I don’t sub. Ever. 

2) Describe the type of performances that you do and how long have you been doing them? I do a wide variety of styles of performance.. but I prefer fetish performance art and kink in general. Some venues prefer I “tone it down” for  whatever licensing they have; which I do. I would never want to get the venue in trouble for My art (which is easier to do  than one would presume). 

3)Who do you take your inspiration from? Who are some of your inspirations and why do you like them? I guess if I’m choosing icons that embodied who I wanted to be from an early age, they would be Morticia Addams for her perfect romantic happiness accomplishments, her ability to balance family as well all of her other passions, and her zero-fucks-given attitude towards society.  Holly Wood (from cool world) for her dance talent, fashion sense, and ruthless ambition. Jessica Rabbit for her stage presence, musical talent, and devotion to family.. & Tank Girl, for all the reasons. I LOVE Tank Girl. 

4) what are some of your hobbies or passions? BDSM, Skateboarding, rock climbing, hiking, bikes, beaches, fine dining, cooking, and fighting the good fight

5) Tell us something we don’t know about you ? I don’t have a type. I can be attracted to a wide variety of human being regardless of gender, interests, body specifics, etc. 

6) Everyone has a fetish or two . What are some of your fetishes ?Latex, giant rubber sheets, and gallons of silicone based lubricant. Leather… so, so much leather.. Corsets, boots and heels shopping, and having My feet rubbed and toes sucked in the store.. also, people choosing to push their own personal boundaries of good ‘taste’ in the name of pleasing Me   .. 

7) What are your future goals in life? My retirement plans will be announced in due time.. just not yet. 

8) If you went out on a date, tell us your perfect date? I’ll come back to this one later because this is like a 3 page essay in itself. 

9) Tell us or describe one sexual fantasy? Vaginal / anal DP. You’d be surprised how shy guys get at the thought of their balls slapping up against another set of balls.  

10) Where are some favorite places you’ve been to and why do you like them?  Hawaii and NYC are My favorite spots in the US. There is always something fun to do, the food is amazing, and some of My best friends reside in them. 

11) Your favorite food and why ? I could survive off the right meat and cheese plate combination for the rest of My life if I needed to..

12) Are you an ocean or a river ? Please explain. An ocean because I’m hard to contain. 

13) Are you a jungle or a forest? Please explain. A jungle because I’m a little wild, but never cold

14) Are you the sun or the moon ? Please explain. Moon.. I always shine brighter at night.

 Here’s my interview with Tracy Lashes and these are her responses:

1) In a relationship are you dominant or submissive ?  I’m a Dominant.

2) Describe the type of performances that you do and how long have you been doing it?   My dance is burlesque with a twist of ballet, contort, weird, cosplay, and surprises. I’ve been doing burlesque for 7 years and ballet for 13 years.

3) Who do you take your inspiration from? Who are some of your inspirations and why do you like them?  My inspiration comes from a mixture of Lili st. Cyr , Blaze star, Marilyn Monroe, Dirty Martini, Sally Rand, cosplay , and Masuimi Max.

7) What are your future goals in life? To be a special effects makeup artist for movies and a traveling burlesque artist .

8) Tell us or describe one sexual fantasy.   I love the movie legend I think my fantasy would be the part when Darkness played by Tim Curry comes out from the mirror and walks up to lili and awakes her. I would love to be lili 😉

9) where are some favorite places you’ve been to and why do you like the?  One of my favorite places I’ve been to is Germany!! It’s so beautiful and the people there are so diverse. Lots of holidays! 

10) Your favorite food and why ?  Korean food is my favorite! It’s so spicy like me 😉 lol 

11) Are you an ocean or a river ? Please explain.   I think I’m an ocean because it’s so big and so much things that’s still a mystery. A river has limits and I don’t really have limits. Life gives you a lot to deal with and sometimes we don’t know what’s coming ahead or to be expected. 

12) Are you a jungle or a forest? Please explain.  I think I’m a forest. With me people see what they see on the outside with my tattoos, weight, and piercings, but when they get to know me it can be an unexpected surprise. Like a forest people see it might be scary and not so beautiful but when you look deep in a forest it can surprise you and you can find some of the beautiful things to photograph. 

13) Are you the sun or the moon ? Please explain.  I’m definitely a moon. I’m mostly alive at night. I’m not a day person mostly grumpy when I first get up and try to figure out my day. Also the moon shines really brite at night compare to a sun it would hurt your eyes when you look upon it. I don’t like to burn people I love people to see me and see the real me and sometimes people can see it in the strangest places.

TEMPLE TRIBAL FUSION BELLYDANCER NAGASITA PERFORMS WITH DAVID J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets)

She has been a sought after belly dancer and teacher of the Pacific NW region,  teaching Tribal Nouveau Temple Dance and Ritual Theatre Internationally. I am so honored that she accepted my invitation to come to Honolulu to perform at David J’s live music performance on Saturday, December 2nd at Next Door (43 North Hotel Street, Honolulu, Hawaii).

I first met Nagasita in 2012 when the Middle Eastern Dance Artists of Hawaii brought Nagasita to Honolulu where she conducted workshops and performed  along with Shakti Dance Movement who shared the stage with her along with others.  Nagasita is a stunning performer to watch and she moves like a serpent, the “Princess of the Serpent Land.”

The beautiful and mesmerizing Nagasita is a Temple Tribal Fusion Belly Dancer who studied under Kashmir Shaivism at the Rudrananda Ashram where she learned  ancient ritual practices from India and Tibet.  Avant garde, innovative and in the cutting-edge of her craft,  she is one of the pioneers of ritual performance in Tribal Bellydance today.

Born in Oahu and later moving to the Big Island, Nagasita danced Kahiko with the Hula Halau which led to an affinity for sacred interpretations through movement.  She is also experienced in yoga and a certified Vinyasa Yoga instructor. Nagasita has studied under the teachings of Tribal Fusion bellydance legends, Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Mardi Love, Moria Chappell and Severina. She spent a number of years studying Odissi Indian Classical dance under the guidance of Jamie Lynn Colley, Colleena Shakti and Moria Chappell, and Butoh with Mizu Dezierto.  She teaches various workshops internationally such as Ritual Theatre, costuming and adornment and so much more. As the founder of Tribal Nouveau Temple Dance Troupe APSARA, she also co-produced the Anahata Festival and world renowned Eastern Nouveau Dance showcase Salon L’Orient and was the director of the dark theatre troupe she founded called Bogville while living in Portland, just to name a few.

Thank you for the Honolulu Star Advertiser and Elizabeth Kieszkowski for the awesome write up in the TGIF Section page 3 on David J, bassist and founding member of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets and Nagasita.

The Venetian Mask Ball is an annual event that celebrates the festivities reminiscent of the Venetian Carnivale that is celebrated all over world and particularly in Venice.  Going on its 7th year, please join us on May 20.

The Venetian Carnival has ancient origins and its roots dates back in the Latin feast of Saturnalia and the Greek feast of Dionysian cults celebrating the start of spring. Although they can be traced back to pagan times, it is said that the Carnival of Venice was started from a victory of the “Serenissima Repubblica or better known as the Most Serene Republic of Venice ” against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven in the year 1162.  In honor of this victory, the people started to dance and gather in San Marco Square.  Venetian masks have always been a central feature of the Venetian carnival and has a long history of protecting their wearer’s identity during promiscuous or decadent activities. Made for centuries in Venice, these distinctive masks were formed from papier-mache and wildly decorated with fur, gems, fabric, or ribbons.
