This event has now sold out. Check out more Live events here.
A Bristol Old Vic favourite, we can’t wait to welcome Vanessa Kisuule back to perform in the building.
The Bristol City Poet for 2018 – 2020, she has won over ten slam titles and has performed across the country and abroad. She was the recipient of The Jerwood Micro Arts Bursary in 2017 and the Leverhulme Arts Scholarship. SEXY, Vanessa’s one woman show, toured the UK in 2018.
Though Vanessa’s work has been channeled online for the last few months, that hasn’t lessened it’s impact. Her poem ‘Hollow’, penned in her capacity as Bristol City Poet & in response to the pulling down of the statue of Edward Colston in Bristol during June’s Black Lives Matter protest, went viral and was seen across the world.
