Combining celebratory stories about gender identity and expression with the power of music and the brilliance of emerging artists, Too Much Hair is a new musical cabaret that highlights the joy of being oneself and having diverse expressions of gender.  Let's celebrate the destruction of the gender binary with confetti cannons, high heels and way too much hair.

Too Much hair is based on a poem by Hone Tuwhare, from an edition illustrated by Ralph Hotere. In this poem, God is described as 'A faceless / hermaphrodite / in turns / displaying / much lovingness / much stern-ness / too much hair'. Too Much Hair can refer to feminine people who choose not to follow stereotypes and shave; to masculine people who choose to grow their hair long; and to a multitude of other gender expressions. It is also a playful reference to the famous musical Hair. Many of us, at one moment or another, have felt that we've just got too much bloody hair.
