Naked Girls Reading NZ is so excited to be making our Auckland debut, we’re practically tearing our clothes off!
This year, everyone’s favourite nude and rude literary show is will be stripping off for the supercity. A beloved cult cabaret, Naked Girls will be bringing not one but THREE delicious original editions to the infamous Caluzzi Cabaret on K Road in 2018. We’ve gathered Auckland’s finest whip-smart sl*ts and hussies to read a dizzying variety of literature from Aotearoa and abroad. It’s an outrageous and innovative theatre experience not to be missed.
Naked Girls Reading is exactly what is sounds like! Completely naked women reading literature aloud. It's a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling - and also, you know, boobs.
Our 2018 Auckland shows are!
The Smut Edition - 7.30pm, June 21st 2018.
Oil your chains, buckle your collars and gussy your ball gags, girls! Our smut edition promises to be a slutty, sordid, scholarly and thoroughly sadistic affair - an intellectual adventure in fetish exhibitionism unlike any other. Expect excerpts of everything kinky and from The Happy Hooker to Lolita, Fifty Shades to Pablo Neruda, the Song of Solomon to the ethics of modern pornography. Perhaps even a few handy sex tips here and there!
Miss Bettsy Rose Lee
The Crime & Punishment Edition - 7.30pm, August 9th 2018.
Sharpen your knives, cock your glocks and prepare for the veritable murder spree that is our crime edition. Drugs! Sex! Violence! Crooks, cartels, and cannibals. Expect excerpts of everything criminal - from Sherlock Holmes to Dostoyevsky, from Steig Larsson to Aileen Wuornos, from David Bain to chewing gum in Singapore. We’ll have you screaming blue bloody murder for this evening of literary illegality.
The Pride Edition - 7.30pm, October 4 2018.
We’re here, we’re queer, we’re naked! These unclad, clever queers have picked their favourite bits of iconic LGBTQIA literature to recite for you. Expect excerpts of everything from Ivan Coyote to campy fanfiction, coming out stories to Brokeback Mountain. We’re ready to f*ck the cis-tem, the patriarchy and the heteronormative power structures that be, one piece of literature at a time.
