A Cabaret of Skin and Bone.

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 sold-out seasons across Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Hawke’s Bay to spectacular reviews and box office waiting lists, The Most Naked is is "much much more than a show - it will toy with your senses, twist your mind and send you deep into your own behaviour values and experiences".

Developed in partnership with Auckland Live.
