Hot Brown Honey (Briefs Factory)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2017

Join the rebellion at the church of ‘Hot Brown Honey’ in this adrenaline-fuelled middle finger to repression and the patriarchy. This is 90s girl power brought right up to date: these ladies are brimming with attitude, fierce and fearless as they sing, dance, beatbox and bash men around the head with giant boobs (no, really!) in an exploration of race, gender, identity and culture. By way of some beautiful aerial work, the message of the show arrives like a punch in the face and, although jarring, it is absolutely perfect. Unapologetically female and intensely proud of their heritage, they’re angry but they’re using it for good. An empowering and unique act, this is a rallying call to unite and make noise.

Assembly Roxy, until 27 Aug.
