Hot Brown Honey turns up the heat, delivering lashings of sass and a hot pinch of empowerment for a smash-hit extravaganza that takes over the ASB Theatre Stage. This NZ premiere is part of Auckland Pride following sell out seasons across Australia including the Sydney Opera house and a smokin’ season in Edinburgh Fringe.
The Honeys will make audiences laugh until they cry, clap their hands until they bleed and shake every part of what their mama gave them. With set, lighting, music and costumes to rival Beyoncé at Madison Square Garden, this is political theatre like NZ audiences have never seen before.
This stellar posse of six phenomenal Australian women of Global First Nations Heritage including Maori, Samoan, Tongan, Indigenous Australian, South African and Indonesian defiantly smash stereotypes, remix the system and dare to celebrate our similarities and differences in an explosion of colour, culture and controversy. Hot Brown Honey make noise with their fierceness while taking on colonialism, sexism, gender stereotypes and racism.
“It’s phenomenal - sexy, foot-stomping fun and radical consciousness-raising all at the same time.” - The Scotsman
