This event is now sold out – join the mailing list to be the first to hear about future events!
An extravagant Folsom Gala featuring exquisitely erotic, sensually subversive, and particularly perilous queer performance art, including aerial acrobatics, suspension bondage, pole dance, and fetish acts, as well as interactive and display art & other participatory marvels. This year our Folsom event explores metamorphosis – "a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means." As always, proceeds go to compensate performers/staff and to support the arts venue, in this case the SOMArts Cultural Center.
Please carefully read our COVID guidelines to determine whether attending this event is within your risk profile.

Attire: Twisted Windows is an artistic fetish environment, and attendees are part of that environment. Wear what makes you feel amazing and seize this opportunity for your finery to be fully appreciated! Fetish or formal attire, leather/lace/latex, and lingerie all appreciated. Nipples and bits must be covered. No effort = no entry.
Entry requirements: This event is 18+, ID and proof of vaccination (including at least one booster) required. Masks are recommended but not required. See details in our COVID Guidelines. All attendees must abide by our code of conduct and sign our release form. Twisted Windows is an event for consenting adults in which activities involving rope, sensuality, sadomasochism, and other erotic interests and practices take place. Performances contain content that may be triggering. Some acts that include elements such as fake prop blood and intense consensual non-consent roleplay have been marked with an asterisk * on our event schedule. We invite you to curate your experience by moving throughout the venue.
This space is wheelchair accessible. Venue details can be found here. ASL interpreters are available upon request – please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 2 weeks prior to the event to request an interpreter.
Only VIP tickets come with a reserved seat. Accessibility seating is available. The only difference between Tiers 1, 2, and 3 tickets is price (there are a limited number of Tier 1 and Tier 2 tickets available). Please contact the producers for accessibility questions and accommodations.
COVID Guidelines: Please see this page for SOMArts specific COVID information. SOMArts has high-volume air outtake fans along one length of our building with corresponding intake venting along the opposite length, ensuring a constant displacement of interior air with fresh outdoor air. Twisted Windows COVID guidelines can be found here.
Photography: To quote the Ropecraft photo policy: "It should be understood that given current availability of photographic technology, there is no way for any event or individual to guarantee that your photo will not be taken at any kink event. Please evaluate your own risk accordingly." We do not allow attendees to take photos or videos of performers or of other attendees (without consent). We have professional photographers, and allow performers to record their own performances. At times we will blur background/non-focus figures, such that there are no identifiable features. There are also clearly marked selfie areas, with backdrops.
Refund policy: Up to 5 days prior to the event, tickets are fully refundable – attendees may refund themselves using the link in the confirmation email. Within 5 days of the event, there is a set number of refunds we have budgeted to provide for folks who are unable to attend for COVID-related reasons. Given the complexities and financial risk of event production, capacity limits, extremely tight budgets (with event proceeds entirely going to pay space rent and pay performers), and logistical impossibility of re-selling tickets at the 11th hour, when/if we reach our pre-set refund cap, from that point on tickets will be fully transferable but not refundable. Please contact us at email@example.com for any questions or concerns.
