Sexquisite presents: Impurity!
Inspired by real sex worker history from the Bishopsgate Institute archives, Sexquisite presents a cabaret show of multidisciplinary performances, with poetry, burlesque, dance, comedy, and more.
This show will explore sex work through the ages - specifically how sex workers have been treated by the police, the media, and society over the years, exploring how sex workers have always existed at the mercy of legislation and public opinion, and still do.
Please note this event will include nudity and the depiction of sexual activity within the context of the performance.
Sexquisite is a community arts company and artist collective, co-directed by Guildhall School alumni Maedb Joy. Sexquisite creates groundbreaking and stigma-defying work through cabaret, theatre, and workshops. Launched in 2019, they are committed to showcasing sex workers’ art and support the full decriminalisation of sex work.
