Hot Brown Honey

Hot Brown Honey is taking the heat up a notch and bringing the temperature to fever pitch – delivering lashings of sass and a hot pinch of empowerment. Packing a potent punch with hip hop politics, the Honeys will make you laugh until you cry, clap until your hands bleed and shake every part of what your mama gave you! This posse of phenomenal women smash stereotypes, remix the system and dare to celebrate our similarities and differences. With set, lighting, music and costume to rival Beyoncé at Madison Square Garden this show is guaranteed to get you on your feet! Serving up an audacious platter of dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease and song, Hot Brown Honey is unapologetically fierce – defiantly shattering clichés in an explosion of colour, culture and controversy.
