Celestial beings from queer dimensions transform the historic Glasgow School of Art into a kaleidoscopic, off-world temple as Brownton Abbey, the Afro-Futurist performance party with a Space Church theme, hits Glasgow.

Created by and centering queer people of colour, especially those with d/Disabilities (s/Super Powers), Brownton Abbey features an international collective of UK  based artists.

The genre defying event fuses a dance 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 dancefloor, as Brownton Abbey takes you to church!


It was nothing short of breathtaking and we all screamed for more
