Celestial beings from queer dimensions transform Harbourfront Centre into a kaleidoscopic off-world temple as Brownton Abbey, the UK based Afro-Futurist performance party with a Space Church theme, hits Toronto.

Created by and centering on queer people of colour, especially those with d/Disabilities (s/Super Powers), Brownton Abbey features an international collective of UK and Toronto based artists. The genre defying event fuses a hyped party, performance art and the personal/political, as a catalyst to celebrate intersectional identities.

Take up space, drench yourself in contemporary ritual, and get transcendental on the dance floor.

If you would like to dress up, then please feel free to interpret the theme of Intergalactic techno church realness.

Recommended for ages 16+.
No strobe or flashing lights will be used for this event. Haze and smoke will be used.

Featuring Rachael Young, Lasana Shabazz, Ebony Rose Dark, Syrus Marcus Ware, Yousef Kadoura and DJ sets from LAL (Rosina Kazi / Nicholas Murray).

Brownton Abbey is creatively co-produced by Tarik Elmoutawakil and Rob Jones.
