Brown Church

SATURDAY 18 SEPTEMBER - 3:00PM

Queer-Glory. Op-Shop-Rich. Dance.

Where do we go when culture and country is stripped off only to leave us with the risks of our own isolation? How many rejected swipe-rights, legislations of erasure and glitter-less, terror-filled nights before you arrive at your truth?

Come forth and be revered.

Brown Church is a theatrical spectacle as served by Meanjin-based godexx Naavikaran. At this holy, gay altar we will witness the journeys of displacements, queer liberation and the euphoria of culture as explored through poetry, music and dance. It centres queerness as a central faith, bringing out the exuberant need to realize colonisation in order to destroy it.

This work is prayer. It is a call for community. It is the future grounded in reality.

Welcome to Brown Church.

It’s time to come home.
