Vanessa Macaulay's Enticement Machine exposes the humour and horror of expectations placed on the racialised female body via twerking and make up tutorials.

A satirical rap video circus that distorts and negotiates the vision of the black female body to make The Enticement Machine. From gawking over the internet to gazing in live performance,  Enticement Machine draws on make-up tutorials, music videos and twerking to interrogate the hyper-sexualisation of the black female body in pop culture. This show takes stereotypes to the  point of the absurd, whilst combining dance, discussion and parody to pollute the image of the Enticement Machine.
