What is Honey Dipped Productions?
Honey Dipped Productions is a company dedicated to artistically producing music and theatre that celebrates new and emerging works. We are a space that is inclusive of and not limited to queer narratives, stories inclusive of trans artists, non-binary artists, and artists of color. We seek to provide a platform for what is just below the surface, on the precipice of change, and in the advent of a new and ever changing world.
What goes on?
Honey Dipped produces a variety of accessible art created and conceived predominantly by women, trans and non-binary folx . Previous projects include off-Broadway plays and musicals, poetry performance series, EP release concerts, staged readings, and art shows. Topics range from transatlantic affairs, sexual awakenings, sad thoughts on Valentine’s Day, things you feel in the morning time, encountering aliens, the end of the world, trying to be friends with your ex even though you know it’s a bad idea. In other words, relatable content.
Who is making these shows?
Our company is owned and operated by two queer female performers turned creatives, Artistic DirectorHelen Huettner and Executive ProducerKelly Glenn. As needed, we fill out the rest of our team with a plethora of additional New York based artists, creatives, and theatre enthusiasts.
Why are you doing this?
We believe by diversifying the voices within the artistic community and by seeking to offer greater artistic employment opportunities to rising artists and creators, we are able to empower the voiceless, the curious, and the oppressed.
Why focus on hiring more diverse artists?
Honey Dipped believes in feminist creation, without an all-male creative team. Honey Dipped believes statistics that women, trans, TGNC, queer, artists of color, are not authentically represented in our industry. We believe our art deserves to be handled with the same complexity through which it was conceived. We believe there is a lot of performance art in New York and beyond without a home and without opportunity and we want to be that platform that gets this art on stage.
Who are Honeys?
Honeys are our alums. Honeys are the fabric of our community. Honeys are our heartbeat. Anyone who has worked on our shows, performed on our stages, contributed to our infrastructure, supported our work, and attended our performances. Welcome to hive. We often stay in touch with our alums, promote future work, and collaborate on their artistic endeavors. We believe when the performance ends the work continues. We hope to uplift our artists beyond our shows and propel important voices to places they are heard.
Should I become involved?
If you are an artist, or fancy yourself an artist, we are always looking for new talent and collaborators! Honey Dipped is more than a company; we are a community.
