Brownton Abbey – your Afro Futuristic Space-Church themed performance party that centres, celebrates and elevates queer people of colour, especially disabled people.
Brownton Abbey seeks to create a temporary experimental habitat in which people who are always ‘Othered’ are holistically able to create and control their own narratives in an intersectionally safe public setting.
With a combination of stunning performances, hypnotic visuals and tribal/decadent set, Brownton Abbey brings into being an alien space-church within which they manifest queer joy, welcoming celebration, creating a safe space where a truly diverse group of people can come together and transcend their everyday selves. The feeling of inclusivity is tangible and unforgettable.
