A theatrical explosion of colour, culture and controversy, Hot Brown Honey will premiere at Fringe World Perth from 8 – 25 February 2018.
Equal parts theatrical masterpiece and social activism, a stellar posse of phenomenal women smash stereotypes in an unapologetic celebration of our similarities and differences. Steeped in the Word of the Mother and packing a potent punch of Hip Hop politics, Hot Brown Honey will make you laugh until you cry, clap until your hands bleed and shake every part of what your mama gave you. With lighting, music and costume set to ignite the change we want to be, Hot Brown Honey is an extraordinary production that spins tradition on its head, going above and beyond to challenge boundaries and embrace resilience.
Hot Brown Honey features a bevy of powerful and talented First Nations women from Aboriginal Australian, Samoan, Tongan, Indonesian and South African backgrounds who are dead set on calling out the patriarchy, shattering preconceptions of colour and having a riotous time doing it. Staring Lisa Fa’alafi as the Game Changer, Ofa Fotu as The Myth Slayer, Hope Haami as Hope One the Beatboxer, Ghenoa Gela as The Truth Sayer, Crystal Stacey as The Peace Maker and Busty Beatz as The Queen Bee.
Hot Brown Honey is produced by the award winning Briefs Factory, the Production Company also responsible for smash hit BRIEFS. The Production team includes Lighting Designer Paul Lim whose use of LED lights combined with ordinary buckets is inspired.
Hot Brown Honey is unapologetically fierce, defiantly shattering preconceptions in an explosion of colour, culture and controversy. Fighting the Power never tasted so sweet!
