Hot Brown Honey
June 9, 2017
Sass, empowerment and politics rooted in hip hop culture are the pillars that form the foundation of Hot Brown Honey – a platform the posse of unapologetically fierce women use to fight the power, weaponize comedy and question stereotypes, remix the system and celebrate our similarities and differences with a platter of dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease and song.
Hot Brown Honey creates a busy hive of circus and hip-hop, burlesque components and beat-boxing, dance and neo-soul cabaret - all performed by a cast of "black, brown and mixed" beauties, and delivered with a political sting.
The mantra is to “make noise” and despite serious messages, a light heartedness and sense of humour when it comes to questioning white privileges is the red thread of the show.
Hosted by queen bee MC Busty Beatz, who gives the evening cohesion, the groovy show is heavy on feminism and civil rights shaped by all shades of lady.
Poignant circus numbers follow striptease, beat boxing and groovy dance parts all with a deeper message celebrating diversity, playing with discrimination in a bid to confront big political issues of the day – racism, sexism, cultural colonialisation, home- and xenophobia - while entertaining in spectacularly decadent ways.
Hot Brown Honey frames social commentary in vibrant and glamorous show while being repulsive and confronting at the same time and allowing room for identification.
A wild and vivid show that makes you groove along while it disrupts and unapologetically tackles uncomfortable truths with feminine disobedience and empowerment.
