Hot Brown Honey have been cooking up a storm across the country and now it’s time for their Melbourne premiere as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival at the Northcote Town Hall from Wednesday 6 April 2016.
The heat has gone up a notch and the temperature has reached fever pitch. After blowing away audiences, Hot Brown Honey are here with their biggest, boldest and brownest show yet – complete with lashings of sass and a hot pinch of empowerment.
Steeped in politics and the original definition of burlesque, this sometimes sweet, sometimes acidic work pushes the form, giving a perfect opportunity to smash stereotypes and remix the system.
A stellar cast of Black, Brown and Mixed beauties are ready to entice, challenge and tease audiences into interrogating their own views. Serving up an audacious platter of dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease and song, the Honeys bring their own brand of fierceness, delicious expressions of sexuality, thought-provoking commentary and absolute hilarity to the table, shattering preconceptions in an explosion of colour, culture and controversy.
Created by Luscious Lisa Fa’alafi (Polytoxic Dance Theatre) the Curvacious Candy B (Ringmaster, Circus OZ) and the Bodacious Busty Beatz (Musical Director – Briefs), as a platform for brown movers and shakers, fighting the power never tasted so sweet!
“It was one of those shows you see where its not just THEATRE or CABARET, it’s the beginning of a massive movement, or it’s a subversion of knowledge that you hold dear, or a mighty sucker punch to the things you thought theatre was capable of…” – Bryony Kimmings (UK)
