Presented by Vanessa Kisuule

Part of Bristol Old Vic's Studio Walkabout Season

"Oi, you. Sentient flesh owner.
I have some questions for you.
Do you think you're sexy?
What do you find sexy?
What does sexy even mean?"

As a young woman who loves poetry, smashing the patriarchy and a well timed slut drop, these are questions that have plagued Vanessa her whole life.

SEXY uses truthful wit and clever verse to explore our conflicted relationship with our bodies and sexiness, exploring our obsession with what is sexy through comedy, spoken word, dance and various states of undress.

@BristolFerment | #SEXY

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space and build a brand new Studio theatre designed by award-winning architects Haworth Tompkins. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, and we're taking our Studio programme on Walkabout around Bristol!

SEXY continues our Studio Walkabout Season, inspired by the city-wide partnerships created during the Theatre's first phase of refurbishment in 2011 which saw us stage productions in other venues including Coram Boy with our friends at Colston Hall.

Please note the venue of this show, and we hope you will join us as we stretch our legs across the city and continue to enjoy our brilliant studio programme.
