Introducing Brownton Abbey: Talk Show; a frank and open conversation with artists and collaborators from the Brownton Abbey Universe.

Join the Afro-Futures Space-Church for exclusive screenings of brand new digital performance commissions and conversations from the collective.

Created by and centring disabled queer, black and brown folks, Brownton Abbey is a mash-up of Performance and Party with a focus on intersectional marginalised communities.

From the safety of your own homes, we invite you to take up space, drench yourself in futurist ritual, and get transcendental, as Brownton Abbey take you to church! 

Supported by UNLIMITED and Marlborough Productions.
