OUR STORY

Created and directed by Erin Kilmurray, FHS began in 2009 in the loft space of multi-disciplinary arts organization The Inconvenience. Envisioning a project that promoted the talented femmes around her and unabashedly celebrated their individuality, Kilmurray choreographed and curated The Fly Honey Show as a one night event with 30 performers for an audience of 200 people.

Since then, the project has grown to a grand annual event boasting over 300 artists in a month long sold-out run. FHS brings together professionals and novice performers alike to join the massive ensemble in wild group choreography. A carefully curated rotating set of performance art lays the groundwork for advancing gender equality and self love. The atmosphere is crafted for a raucous event that will have everyone leaving feeling better than when they came in.

The Fly Honeys are a tribe of fierce individuals who are here to stay.

In addition to the annual event, The Fly Honeys perform commissioned events with flexible scale.
