Hot Brown Honey turn up the heat with lashings of sass and a hot pinch of empowerment in the smash-hit, genre-defying, award-winning firecracker of a show that's taken the world by storm.
Get ready for an explosion on stage as the Australian collective behind Hot Brown Honey disarms inequalities, crushes stereotypes and gets you fired up for change with their girlpower. A genre-defying mix of hip hop, circus, dance and music with dazzling humor in an unapologetically fierce show that keeps its audience in a loving iron grip.
Queen MC Busty Beatz rules the party from her disco throne and fires off feminist truths between the acts. The six "Honeys" fight the power with fierce entertainment and political force.
The show premiered in 2015 at the Adelaide Fringe Festival och has since become a world wide success. Armed with humour, the show tackles complex and controversial issues like colonisation, racial stereotypes and white privilege.
The female cast behind Hot Brown Honey effectively use their own experiences to turn the patriarchy upside down and challenge its boundries. In their own words: ”The Honeys will make you laugh until you cry, clap until your hands bleed and shake every part of what your mama gave you. Fighting the power never tasted so sweet!”
Hot Brown Honey has been celebrated by audiences, praised by av critics and won multiple awards. The show has sold out venues like the Sydney Opera House, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Brisbane Festival. Now it's finally time to welcome them to Umeå and Sweden!
The show is in English and is suitable for audiences from the age of 16.
