HBAF 2022 -The Most Naked

HBAF 1170x504px The Most Naked

Fearlessly sinking its teeth into cultural mores around nudity, strip tease and the flashing of skin, The Most Naked is a compelling, wild, and unsettlingly sexy multidisciplinary work-come-cabaret that strips nakedness right down to the bone. Inspired by cabaret and burlesque art-forms, and incorporating mesmerising dance artistry, subversive theatre, spectacular live music and political eroticism.

Created and performed by force-of-nature movement alchemist and "most naked” performer Hannah Tasker-Poland, with the live musical wizardry of internationally renowned composer and musician Lucien Johnson.

Fresh from two sold-out seasons in Auckland and Wellington to spectacular reviews and box office waiting lists, The Most Naked will not be the show you were expecting but GODDAMN it’ll be the show you’re glad you got.

Developed in partnership with Auckland Unlimited.
