Fighting The Power Never Tasted So Sweet!

Kick Off The 32nd Annual High Performance Rodeo With This Opening Performance That Is Not To Be Missed!

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. Hot Brown Honey spins tradition on its head, going above and beyond to challenge boundaries and embrace resilience. Equal parts theatrical masterpiece and social activism, a stellar posse of phenomenal women smash stereotypes in an unapologetic celebration of our similarities and differences.

Recipients of the 2016 UK’s Total Theatre Award for Innovation , Australia's Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer and Green Room Awards for Best Production and Best Design, Hot Brown Honey have lit centre stage at the most prestigious venues and festivals across the globe. HOT BROWN HONEY make moise with their fierceness, shattering preconceptions in an inspiring explosion of colour, culture and controversy.


Join The Honeys On Stage After The Show for a Dance Celebration!
