About
Club ViviSEXion
The bizarre two-part story of a young country woman who, thanks to an unusual turn of events, finds herself the owner of a club/brothel in the city. Her new urban universe is filled with characters of epic dimensions: talented prostitutes, a mobster barman, discerning hitmen, kinky customers, lonely and miserable regulars, and a bad poet. Her quest for identity also runs as both subtext and point of entry into this gothic universe made humorous by a healthy dose of pop psychology and “efficient” management theory.
