Redefining and re-inspiring erotic and arts cultures by bring them together, Studio Servitù has become LA’s premiere high-end studio and creative space. With events as diverse as the reknowned Dr. Sketchy’s, fetish parties, and gallery benefits, the original downtown studio has been a talked about destination in web magazines, blogs, and social networks. It has hosted shoots by such notable artists as Lithium Picnic, Steve Dietgoedde, Holly Randall, and Ellen Stagg and popular alt models like Angela Ryan and Skin Diamond, as well as everything from R&B videos to mainstream studio films.
Now, with a massive expansion, Servitù is poised to make an even bigger impact on underground culture.
Under a year ago, Studio Servitù opened its doors and Los Angeles gained an elegant space where the finest of the erotica, fetish, alt, and mainstream art and film communities could come together for unique and unforgettable occasions. It is a place where everyone can leave work behind and enjoy each others’ ideas. Servitù events are much-anticipated, engaging atmosphere and company creating memorable nights recalled long after the event has passed.
After a brief transition to a new space, Studio Servitù is prepared for a celebrity red carpet Grand Re-opening on April 23, 2011. Guests should expect the same special ambiance of the original, only on a much larger scale. In a 3700 square foot venue with two stages, full projection, and surround sound, Servitù can accommodate photo and video shoots, gallery installations, events, parties, classes, and seminars. The expansive space offers a sophisticated backdrop with clean, open lines for striking visuals. Huge windows surround the studio, providing natural light and panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles. Rich black floors against boldly-striped or crisp white walls, accented with exposed pillars and pipes, are the ideal atmosphere for events, parties, and classes.
To accommodate larger events and shoots, Servitù has added dramatically to its amenities. The new studio includes a large wet bar space, overnight guest quarters, public and private restrooms, private freight elevator and loading dock for easy access. Professional lighting equipment is available on a rental basis, as are other critical services.
Los Angeles had been waiting for a studio like Servitù before its first opening; it now has an even better destination to look forward to debuting at its April 23rd Grand Re-opening. Erotica has found its home right in the heart of downtown.
Studio Servitù is co-owned by Miss Crash and Ms. Jane Jett, whose breath-taking hook suspension dance performances onstage with Jane’s Addiction have earned them coverage in Rolling Stone Magazine and LA Weekly. Well-known figures in the erotica and arts communities, as extreme performers and models, they have created Servitù as a space for greater collaboration between adult and mainstream creators.
Crash has been seen all over the world, from the Sunset Strip to London’s Torture Garden and beyond. Formally titled “the Queen of Suspension” after setting a world record for Body Suspension in 2008, her images and performances have been widely published. Her unique combination of classic dance, burlesque, old-school side show, and body suspension, not only pushes her own personal boundaries, but that of her audience, opening their eyes to a vision of the bizarre they can easily relate to and elusive fantasy to fire their imagination. Her unique talent has made her a new modern breed of crossover performer.
Ms. Jane Jett, along with appearances as a hook suspension artist in concerts, fetish balls and conventions throughout the US, has been a featured model for clothing companies, magazines, and websites. She is a true fetishist and specialist in pain application and management, as well as a Master of Psychology. With mind and body meshed together so beautifully, Jane stands at the forefront of redefining the edges of modern sexuality.
