Presented by Vanessa Kisuule


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, this has been a question that has plagued Vanessa her whole life.

SEXY playfully looks at our conflicted relationship with our bodies and sexiness.

This explores our obsession with what is sexy through comedy, spoken word, dance and various states of undress.
