Hot Brown Honey
About Hot Brown Honey
Get ready to #DecolonizeAndMoisturize—Hot Brown Honey make their hotly-anticipated US debut at NYU Skirball following award-winning performances around the globe, from the Sydney Opera House to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Six powerful and talented First Nations women — from Aboriginal Australian, Samoan, Tongan, Indonesian and South African backgrounds — perform their sensational blend of cabaret featuring hip-hop, dance, poetry, comedy, circus, striptease, and song. Set in a dazzling beehive with lighting, music and costumes to rival Beyoncé at Madison Square Garden, Hot Brown Honey pushes boundaries and defies labels. It is equal parts theatrical spectacular and social activism, presented by Australia’s infamous Briefs Factory.

“Smashing the patriarchy has never seemed quite so much fun” — The Guardian
“Hot Brown Honey sounds, looks, and feels like the revolution we so urgently need.” — Gayatri Gopinath
