FIVE FAST FRINGE QUESTIONS with Hot Brown Honey

It’s that time of year when we launch our annual series of Fringe preview Q & A’s. This time it’s the turn of Hot Brown Honey.

In one sentence tell us about your show.

Hot Brown Honey is where rebellion brews, defiance stews with a dash of taboo, we are here to interrogate all your views.

What made you decide to bring a show this year?

We had to come back and continue to decolonise the stage. It’s just how we roll.

Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?

The Arts has the capacity to change culture and the Fringe is an example of how we can be a part of this – artists and audiences alike – we are the Change Creators! Bring it on! Be open, walk up that hill, breath in the sweet Alba air, get into the creative revolution that surrounds you. Also remember to moisturise. Like erryday!

What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)  

In the words of Dr Angela Davis: “You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.” THIS IS HOW WE DO IT!

What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?

There is so much brilliant work this year. We do not want to miss any work that pushes the envelope, creates dialogue and shows perspectives of world and how to change it. Looking forward to seeing the work of Article 11 Indigenous Activists, Half Breed,  Wonder and The Fall which dismantles “race, class, gender, sexism, colonialism and ideologies of patriarchy” in the face of South Africa’s student demonstrations. Boom!

Finally, the boring but essential bit…
